Ellsworth Loop Road Improvement District

Improving roads for future commercial and residential growth.

Dibble completed the design of over four miles of divided arterial roadway, including Ellsworth Loop Road from north of Chandler Heights Road to Queen Creek Road and Rittenhouse Road from east of Hawes Road to Ocotillo Road. Ellsworth Loop Road was designed as a by-pass route for trucks and commuter traffic and provides access for proposed commercial developments. The improvements included six travel lanes, raised median for access control, storm drain, traffic signals and lighting. The design includes a depressed intersection with a new major bridge for the Union Pacific Railroad track. Work also included a new bridge structure crossing the Queen Creek Wash. Public involvement was essential for educating the public about the project benefits.

Project Lifecycle

Dibble successfully collaborated with the UPRR to cross their property and tracks. Similar to this project location, several critical utilities were within the UPRR property and required relocation. Dibble held monthly utility coordination meetings, provided updated proposed construction plans, and collaborated with them to facilitate their relocation design and construction. The UPRR coordination was the most critical, and most challenging aspect of our work on this project. Dibble pulled this project from planning to final design in a scant 14 month schedule.
