Community collaboration results in roadway repair, improvements for Maricopa County roadway
A recent collaboration between the MCDOT, the Sun City Homeowners Association (SCHOA) and a private property owner resulted in roadway repairs that will positively impact roadway users near 103rd Avenue and Santa Fe Drive in Sun City.
“This is a great example of the teamwork between Maricopa County, its businesses and its residents,” said Maricopa County Supervisor Clint Hickman. “By working together, we were able to address an issue and improve conditions for those in the area.”
The roadway had previously experienced pooling water on the northwest corner of the intersection causing damage to the sidewalk and roadway, which are frequently used by pedestrians, drivers and transit. SCHOA representatives brought the situation to the attention of MCDOT, who then collaborated with the private property owner to make repairs.
“Because of our close relationship with SCHOA and the private property owner, we were able to assess the situation and come up with a solution that met the needs of everyone involved, especially those who use the road and sidewalk regularly,” said Alfred Erives, Division Manager for the MCDOT Permitting, Construction and Inspections Division.
MCDOT repaired the sidewalk, updated the sidewalk ramp to meet new ADA standards and addressed the water drainage concern. The private property owner contributed by clearing out the drainage channel on its property to prevent future ponding.
