Northern Avenue overpass dedication Dec. 5
The Glendale Star – Monday, December 2, 2013

Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman, in partnership with Mayor Lana Mook of the City of El Mirage, Mayor Jerry P. Weiers of the City of Glendale, Mayor Bob Barrett of the City of Peoria and Maricopa Association of Governments invite the public to participate in the inaugural dedication celebration commemorating the completion of the first phase of the Northern Parkway Program between Sarival Avenue and Dysart Road. The event takes place 2 p.m. Dec. 5 on site of the newly constructed Northern Parkway/Sarival Avenue overpass just west of Reems Road.

Access the event site via Olive Avenue and Reems Road and follow event signage. Parking will be provided adjacent to the event site.

This initial phase of the Northern Parkway Program, extending between Sarival Avenue and Dysart Road, constructed an interim four-lane roadway consisting of the eastbound and westbound auxiliary lanes and the two outside travel lanes to achieve the interim roadway configuration of two travel lanes in each direction of the ultimate six-lane Northern Parkway. A center concrete barrier and an additional inside lane in each direction will be added in the future to form the ultimate six-lane configuration. The roadway is expected to open to traffic in late December.

Phase One of the Northern Parkway Program included connecting ramps for future grade-separated intersections (over-passes); bridge structures at the BNSF spur/143rd Avenue and Sarival Avenue crossings; new curb, gutter and street lighting at on/off ramps and intersecting cross streets; and the installation of new traffic signals at Sarival Avenue, Reems Road and Litchfield Road. In addition, segments of the White Tanks Area Drainage Master Plan were constructed as part of this current Northern Parkway project in partnership with the Flood Control District of Maricopa County.
