PHOENIX – You will be able to get a look later this month at artwork and landscaping designs for the Arizona Department of Transportation’s upcoming project to reconstruct the Interstate 17 interchanges at Happy Valley and Pinnacle Peak roads in north Phoenix.
ADOT and the city of Phoenix will host a public meeting March 22 to preview the aesthetics and landscaping concepts to be used when the two interchanges are rebuilt starting this fall.
The meeting is scheduled as follows:
What: I-17 Happy Valley/Pinnacle Peak interchanges Aesthetics/Landscaping Preview
When: Thursday, March 22, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Where: Goelet A. Beuf Community Center, 3435 W. Pinnacle Peak Road, Phoenix
The meeting will feature a formal presentation at 6 p.m., during which members of ADOT’s Roadside Specialist team will preview landscaping concepts for the improved interchanges at Happy Valley and Pinnacle Peak roads.
Artists selected by the city of Phoenix also will display and discuss the aesthetic treatments to be used at the Happy Valley Road interchange.
The reconstructed Happy Valley interchange will be among the first in Arizona to serve as a “Diverging Diamond,” where traffic approaching the new bridge over I-17 will use intersections to move to the left side of the bridge for easier, direct left turns onto the freeway on-ramps.
You are invited to attend the meeting to ask questions of the ADOT and city of Phoenix project teams while looking over the art and landscape concepts.
Those unable to attend the meeting can learn more at azdot.gov/I17TrafficInterchanges and provide feedback by calling the ADOT Project Information Line at 855.712.8530 or emailing Projects@azdot.gov.
