Bell Road/Grand Avenue Update

BELL ROAD will be closed beginning 10 pm on April 1!

With the 6-8 month closure of Bell Road, from 134th Drive to West Point Parkway, beginning on Friday, April 1, at 10 p.m., I wanted to dedicate the majority of this issue to the overall project and the traffic restrictions. The Bell Road/Grand Avenue Interchange Project is using the design-build contracting method, which provides flexibility while the contractor’s designers work side-by-side with the construction team to deliver an improved connection between the two roadways.

The Arizona Department of Transportation contractors will build a Bell Road bridge over Grand Avenue and the railroad tracks. Median ramps in the center of Grand Avenue will connect the roadways. Utility relocation work in the area, mostly during overnight hours, is already underway.

The project is scheduled to be completed over the next 14 months (in spring 2017); however, Bell Road is scheduled to reopen in November in time for the holiday shopping season.

ADOT has issued the following project update, which includes upcoming traffic restrictions and a timeline of the Bell Road full closure activities:

Thursday, March 31

  • Eastbound and westbound Grand Avenue median removal preparation will begin at 10:30 pm on Thursday, March 31 until 5 am on Friday, April 1. No left turns onto Bell Road from Grand Avenue.

Friday, April 1

  • There will be eastbound and westbound left lane closures on Grand Avenue to remove traffic signals and medians from 10 pm to 5 am. No left turns from Grand Avenue to Bell Road, or right turns from eastbound Grand Avenue to Bell Road.
  • Bell Road Closed by 10 pm between West Point Parkway and 134th Drive (detour in place).

Saturday, April 2

  • Grand Avenue will be restricted to one lane in each direction for median paving and pavement lane line marking.

Sunday, April 3 at 10 pm to Monday, April 4 at 5 am

  • Westbound Grand Avenue left lane closure.
  • Eastbound Grand Avenue CLOSED from Litchfield Road to Dysart Road to remove pavement lane line markings and replace with new lane line markings.

Monday, April 4 and Tuesday, April 5

  • Bell Road demolition from Grand Avenue to West Point Parkway.
  • Grand Avenue will be open to two lanes in each direction.
  • Eastbound Grand Avenue right lane closure to install construction barrier and remove existing traffic signals from 10 pm to 5 am.

**City, County, and State law enforcement will be patrolling the area during the Bell Road closure transition. Please obey all traffic signage and posted speed limits.**

** While the closure is in place, Bell Road traffic will be directed to a primary detour route along Dysart, Greenway and Litchfield roads.

*schedule subject to change based on design schedule, weather, or unforeseen conditions

For more information or if you have questions regarding the project, please stay informed! ADOT has a project hotline specific for this project, (855) 712-8530, press option #1. You may also contact ADOT via email at bellandgrandinfo@azdot.gov or on their website at www.azdot.gov/bellandgrand.

This will begin Phase 3A of the project. Please see Illustration below as well as the detour map.

Local businesses will be open and accessible during the Bell-Grand Project!

Businesses on all sides of the Bell Road and Grand Avenue interchange improvement project will be open during construction. In coordination with our partner ADOT, a business access map has been released to help residents find entry points to the shopping, dining and service destinations around the construction project area.

The following driveways along Bell Rd will remain open during the full closure; but ADOT will close them from time-to-time during construction. For this reason we did not specifically highlight them on the business access map.

*The traffic signal at Bell Rd and West Point Pkwy/Towne Center Dr will allow motorists in a single lane to continue thru the signal to access the Surprise Marketplace driveways near Compass Bank and Chick-fil-A; allowing for right turn-in only entry to the shopping center.

*Exit points out of Surprise Towne Center will also be open as construction permits with right-turn outs only onto Bell next to I-Hop and behind the Five Guys Burgers and the Vitamin Shoppe building.

The following driveways along Grand Ave will remain open as construction activities permit through mid-May:

Surprise Towne Center
Taco Bell/ Office Max
Starbucks/Bank of America

Surprise Marketplace
Olive Garden
Del Taco

Access to businesses at signalized intersections will be maintained and are the recommended entry points into the business areas.

The Construction Business Access map shows the business entry options, permitted traffic movements, and lane configurations that shoppers can expect April 1 (after 10 p.m.) through mid-November. The reverse side of this map also includes the full closure detour route and ADOT’s project hotline number, website and email address for additional information.

Bell & Grand Business Access Map

In addition to traffic information, the “Bridge Buddy Outreach” campaign will provide support for businesses in the construction area, thanks to a partnership with the city and the Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce. This collaboration with local businesses on a Bell & Grand ShopSurprise campaign that will launch in May and provide opportunities for residents to opt-in to receive daily deals, giveaways, and events from businesses near the project area. Stay tuned for additional details!

The Bell & Grand ShopSurprise campaign and a larger version of the business access map are featured in the city’s spring 2016 Progress magazine, which should be mailed to you any day now. Magazines are also available in the Surprise City Hall lobby, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza; View the online version of Spring 2016 Progress Magazine.

Business Stakeholder Meeting Update

Approximately 17 business representatives attended the Bell and Grand Stakeholder Meeting at City Hall, March 29.

Economic Development (ED) opened the meeting by providing information regarding resources available to support businesses during the Bell Rd closure. ED promoted the upcoming business seminars, specifically, the March 31 seminar titled A New Way of Marketing Your Business. ED encouraged the businesses to get involved with the Surprise Regional Chamber Bell Grand Shop Surprise campaign to help promote their businesses during the bridge project closure. Those in attendance were given the spring 2016 issue of Progress Magazine that includes six pages of Bell-Grand construction project details, business access map and the Shop Surprise initiative.

ADOT presented the four-phase construction plan for 134th Dr/134th Ave construction and traffic management:

Mid-April – early May

  • Access to businesses in the area will be maintained on 134th Dr & Bell Rd and at Dysart & Bell roads
  • Traffic will be on the north side of Bell Road and will be restricted to one lane in each direction between 134th Dr and Dysart Rd; the south side of Bell Rd is under construction at this time

Early May – mid-June

  • Access to businesses in the area will be maintained on 134th Dr & Bell Rd and at Dysart & Bell Rd
  • Traffic is moved to the south side lanes of Bell Rd and is still restricted to one lane in each direction between 134th Dr and Dysart Rd; 134th Ave is being constructed on the north side of Bell Rd at this time

Mid-June – late June

  • Access to businesses in the area will be maintained on 134th Dr & Bell Rd; 134th Avenue & Bell (now open) and at Dysart & Bell Rd Late

June – November

  • Access to businesses in the area will be maintained on 134th Ave & Bell Rd and at Dysart & Bell Rd
  • 134th Dr cul de sac is under construction

ADOT informed the group that APS and Cox Communications will be conducting utility relocation work in April that may result in temporary lane restrictions and brief closures on Bell Rd west of Dysart.

Stakeholders, specifically those located on the south side of Bell Rd near 134th Dr, had questions regarding traffic configurations and business access during construction. A primary concern was left turn movements from Bell Rd into business driveways. ADOT has confirmed that left turn access to these businesses will be maintained throughout construction, with the exception of possible nighttime work.

With over 483,000 veterans in Arizona, the need for a Veteran Center is certainly justified and most definitely welcome in the West Valley. I am extremely honored to be part of this Committee and the future facility which would be funded by federal grants and local fundraising.

City Council Meeting


City Council Work Session
The City Council met for our regularly scheduled Work Session on Tuesday, October 7th.  As part of the Work Session, Assistant Fire Chief Darrell Johnston discussed the amendments to the fireworks regulation the State legislature recently made.  They created three categories of fireworks which consist of display fireworks (fireworks necessitating a permit from the City), consumer fireworks (fireworks citizens can purchase and use, subject to regulation), and unregulated fireworks that can be utilized anywhere, such as sparklers.  Display fireworks continue to be closely regulated by the City.  The Fire Department would like Council to consider similar changes to our current Fireworks Ordinance that would mimic the updated State changes.  The Ordinance would state consumer fireworks cannot be set off on public property (property belonging to any government entity); the use and sales of consumer fireworks are limited to time periods specified in the legislation just passed; consumers must be 16 years of age to purchase and set-off fireworks; and, consumer fireworks cannot be set off without the permission of the property owner.  This Ordinance would require the sellers of fireworks to obtain a permit from the Fire-Medical Department, which would provide recovery of expenses for an emergency response relating to firework injuries.

In addition to the discussion on fireworks, Misty Leslie, City Attorney, reviewed the Council’s requested changes to the Council’s Boards & Commissions policies.  Some of the discussion included the adoption of an annual schedule for each Commission’s regular meetings; prohibiting political activity (members must resign to run for a local election) by tendering a letter of resignation prior to campaigning; and, the elimination of the Teen Advisory Board and the Surprise Youth Leadership Commission to integrate the Youth Civic Leaders Program.

City Council Regular Meeting
Mike Gent, Public Works Director, and Dave Kohlbeck, Business Manager, provided the City Council with an overview of the fiscal year 2014 transit service as well as the planned fiscal year 2015 services.  Surprise Express Route 571 bus service was reviewed.  The City plans to work with Phoenix, El Mirage and Valley Metro to keep the fourth trip we acquired in July 2013.  Surprise will continue to seek a convenient temporary relocation of the Park-and-Ride once the construction of the Bell/Grand Avenue overpass begins.  Future transit services, such as a Surprise circulator and Surprise connection to regional service routes, were also discussed.

The Valley Metro Dial-A-Ride services were reviewed.  Priority has been given to ADA, seniors and others with disabilities.  Currently, services are provided Monday through Saturday from 7 am to 5 pm.  Fares within the City limits for service are $1 and outside the City limits are $1.25.  Based on consumer surveys, Dial-A-Ride is mostly utilized for medical purposes (31%), followed by other uses (27%) and work (20%).  Possible expanded weekday service, extended weeknight service hours and added Saturday service was discussed.

Janeen Gaskins, Grants Administrator, reviewed our current Surprise Community Outreach Program, and she suggested changes to the evaluation criteria based on the recommendations from the Grants & Community Outreach Committee.  The Council has set aside $50,000 to help support local 501(c)3.  The Committee had requested one funding round for FY14-15 and the elimination of in-kind contributions.  Mrs. Gaskins will conduct a pre-application meeting that will help determine eligibility.  Later this month, the Committee will review and rank the recommendations with plans to present their award recommendations to the entire City Council in November 2014.  These changes were passes unanimously.

Arts & Cultural Advisory Commission Meeting
The Arts & Cultural Advisory Commission hosted their monthly meeting at City Hall on Monday, October 6th.  Susan deJong, Commission Chair, informed the Commission that she will proceed to schedule the Luncheon Theater Program through Herberger Theater and that the West Valley Arts HQ is a possible site for the program.  Eric Faulhaber, the Visual Arts Coordinator for the City of Chandler and Coordinator of the platFORM initiative gave the group a presentation outlining the platFORM program.  Councilman Jim Biundo and I were in attendance and found this program very interesting!  The initiative is available to create opportunities for student artists to place existing pieces or propose new sculptures for placement in public places.  The Commission will place this item on the November agenda for discussion and possible action to make the recommendation to the City Council.  The next cycle starts in April 2015.  Lastly, the Commission unanimously voted to endorse WHAM’s “Give your Community a Hand” mural project.  The unveiling will take place at the Surprise Party in December.

60th Aerial Delivery
I invited Mick Anderson and several other veterans to meet with the Mayor and me to receive a Certificate of Appreciation for their service in the US Air Force.  This special group of veterans meets every other year at a different location and this year, it was Surprise!  We were able to thank the group for their service and sacrifice to our country and provide them with a tour of the Council Chamber.
