Smith Road Improvements Have Begun

The City of Tempe has begun work on the Smith Road improvements. The project area is Smith Road between Apache Boulevard and Rio Salado Parkway and will include bike lanes and sharrow markings where the road is too narrow for lanes.

There will be an open house style meeting on May 14th at the Escalante Community Center, 2150 E Orange Street between 4:30 and 6PM.

In areas where the rights of way are exceptionally narrow some structures will require relocating. This SRP irrigation standpipe is a prime example. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
