The intersection of Grand Avenue and Bell Road is busy, one of the busiest in all of Maricopa County. That will hopefully change when ADOT completes a new project that began late last month.
Crews are building a brand new bridge to carry Bell Road drivers over Grand Avenue. This will allow drivers to cruise through the area without stopping, and the goal is to decrease congestion.
Right now drivers are just seeing restrictions in the area, but on April 1st Bell Road will shutdown for 6-8 months. It should open up by the holiday shopping season in November. The entire project is expected to wrap up next spring.
