The following message is from the City of Glendale:
The following is a tentative schedule and information on the overlay process for Union Hills Drive, from 59th Avenue to 75th Avenue; and 59th Avenue, from Bell Road to Union Hills Drive:
The overlay process is currently scheduled to take place daily beginning Thursday, March 3rd, and will take approximately 2-3 weeks to complete. During the mill/overlay operations, business and resident access will be maintained; however, traffic will be restricted. Side streets and driveways will be maintained except when the work crosses driveways or access points. Vehicular access to driveways and side streets will not be permitted for short periods (30 minutes or less). It is important for the quality of the overlay that vehicles do not immediately travel on it; therefore, construction crews may block driveways or direct travelers for a short time.
Scheduled For Saturday, March 12th
The contractor will mill up the existing asphalt, beginning with the 75th Avenue/Union Hills Drive intersection and then the westbound lanes (north side) of Union Hills Drive, from 67th Avenue to 75th Avenue. This work will be directly followed with paving back of asphalt in these respective areas. To accommodate the milling and paving of the intersection, the 75th Avenue/Union Hills Drive intersection will be CLOSED on Saturday, March 12th from 12:00 am until 12:00 pm. Vehicles will not be permitted to travel through the intersection. Once the intersection has reopened, WESTBOUND Union Hills Drive, between 67th Avenue and 75th Avenue, will be CLOSED to accommodate the milling and paving of WESTBOUND Union Hills Drive, between 67th Avenue and 75th Avenue. Business access will be maintained as much as possible during these closures, and law enforcement officers will be on-site throughout the process to assist with traffic management.
Tentatively Scheduled For Sunday, March 13th
Beginning at 12:00 am, the contractor will mill up the existing asphalt in the eastbound lanes (south side) of Union Hills Drive, from 75th Avenue to 67th Avenue. This will again be directly followed with paving back of asphalt. To accommodate this activity, EASTBOUND Union Hills Drive, between 75th Avenue and 67th Avenue, will be CLOSED on Sunday March 13th.
• Following this work, crews will apply striping, and raise utilities to make them flush with the new road surface.
The milling and paving of Greenway Road, between 59th and 67th avenues, will follow the same sequence of activities and is currently scheduled to take place the week of March 14th.
We are coordinating with HOAs, schools, and businesses along these streets and an ad regarding the intersection closures will be in the March 3rd edition of the Glendale Star. We want to make sure you are in the loop so that if you need any information or if you receive questions/complaints from your residents or businesses, you will know about the project. Should you receive inquiries or even complaints related to the project, please don’t hesitate to contact me or even give out my direct number.
