Aerial video shows progress on Bell and Grand project

By Caroline Carpenter / ADOT Communications

Thanks to the city of Surprise for sharing this awe-inspiring drone footage of progress on the overpass and interchange ADOT is building at US 60 (Grand Avenue) and Bell Road. This project will increase safety and reduce congestion by allowing drivers to travel over US 60 and the BNSF Railway tracks and connect with US 60 via new ramps.

Those viewing the site over the next week will see: 
  • Columns rising on both sides of Grand Avenue. The holes drilled for these columns are 66 feet deep, by the way.
  • A distinctive agave pattern on finished columns after concrete is poured into forms.
  • Final installation of drainage pipes that are 54 inches in diameter.
To speed construction and have Bell Road reopened by November, a section of Bell is closed.

Stay up to date on the progress by visiting our US 60 (Grand Ave) and Bell Road Interchange project page.
