Traffic Alerts - SR 347 and Old Maricopa Intersection

New traffic signal at SR 347 and Old Maricopa Road intersection to be activated Monday, Aug. 15

The Arizona Department of Transportation’s intersection improvement project at State Route 347 and Old Maricopa Road is nearing completion. On Monday, Aug. 15, a new traffic-signal system installed at the intersection will be turned on. Construction of new north- and southbound acceleration lanes for traffic entering SR 347 from Old Maricopa Road was completed earlier this month.

Drivers are asked to use caution and anticipate merging traffic conditions in the area. Some additional minor work and possible lane restrictions should be expected over the next few weeks. .

The $1.3 million intersection upgrade project has been underway for seven months. It is designed to improve safety and traffic conditions for drivers in that area north of the city of Maricopa, especially motorists who are entering SR 347 from Old Maricopa Road.
