Construction work on the east side of 67th Avenue at Quail Avenue in north Glendale is scheduled to begin Monday, Sept. 20.
To accommodate the work that will install a manhole, 67th Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction with traffic shifted to the west side of 67th Avenue, south of Deer Valley Road. In addition, Quail Avenue will be closed to traffic on the east side of 67th Avenue, and no left turns will be permitted to or from Melinda Lane.
Closures will be for 24 hours per day and work is expected to be complete in two weeks from the start.
City Councilwoman Lauren Tolmachoff, who represents the Cholla District in the area of the construction, warned residents in her newsletter this week about “significant traffic delays” that may result on 67th Avenue north of Loop 101.
“I do realize this will be a major inconvenience for those of us that use 67th Avenue on a regular basis, as I too use it to get to and from work,” Tolmachoff wrote. “The project is necessary as the manway hole will give engineers access to an important water pipe that originates at the Pyramid Peak Water Treatment Plant, which needs routine testing to continue to keep our water safe and monitor the infrastructure delivering it.”
