Plan ahead with major upgrade starting at Bell and Grand


By Caroline Carpenter / ADOT Communications

We hope you've heard the news that ADOT is starting construction of a bridge that will carry Bell Road over Grand Avenue (US 60) and railroad tracks. This much-needed upgrade will help relieve traffic congestion in Surprise.

Making it happen between the end of Cactus League baseball and the holiday shopping season requires a six- to eight-month closure of Bell at Grand starting Friday night, April 1.

The video above will help you plan ahead, including explaining the detour. It has other essential information, such as the fact that you can access businesses on both sides of the project area at all times.
