Butler Drive project nearing completion


The Butler Drive improvement project is expected to be complete by the end of August, city documents say.

Construction has begun to modify a dead-end road into a landscaped area that provides sidewalk/trail connectivity, utility access, and landscaping near Butler Drive and 114th Avenue.

 Asphalt removal has been completed and concrete work is underway.  For project information, contact the city’s project hotline at 602-315-9844.

The goal of the project is to build a stabilized, decomposed-granite walking path with limited landscape enhancements from Butler Drive to Olive Avenue along the parcel west of the Suncliff subdivision about one-half mile long.

In addition, this project provides minimal landscaping at a nearby well-site accessible in the Suncliff subdivision from 114th Lane.

The Suncliff subdivision has a feature trail connecting Northern Parkway to Butler Drive as part of the subdivision’s original development. This project will provide a pathway connection, which will enhance the health and wellness for residents and visitors, documents said.
