Roundabout project is upgrading SR 88 intersection in Apache Junction


By David Woodfill / ADOT Communications

An ADOT project underway in Apache Junction is going to give residents a modern intersection at State Route 88 and Superstition Boulevard while accommodating weekend warriors heading to and from the Salt River lake system and other points of interest along Apache Trail.

s5be1d978c8006c57b531ff0000a35efcAs we shared in a release last week, crews are nearing completion on a modern roundabout designed to accommodate traffic in this growing area safely and efficiently.

Final construction will require a month-long closure now underway at the intersection. There are convenient ways around the closure east and west of the intersection.

A modern roundabout can accommodate greater traffic volumes than a regular intersection. It's also designed to accommodate increased traffic, so this intersection will be ready for growth. 

Boat trailers and large trucks are no problem. A modern roundabout's inner circle, known as a truck apron, has additional pavement at the edge that allows larger vehicles to easily maneuver.
