Weeklong closure of Grand Avenue in Sun City

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Department of Transportation says motorists in Sun City should prepare for a weeklong closure that will restrict access to northbound 111th Avenue at Grand Avenue.

According to ADOT, 111th Avenue will be closed just north of Grand Avenue for intersection reconstruction work beginning Monday and continuing to 8 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 9.

Southbound traffic can use Santa Fe Drive to Del Webb Boulevard. Northbound traffic can use Grand Avenue to 107th Avenue.

Motorists should plan extra travel time and use alternate routes if possible.

The south side intersection at 111th and Grand avenues will remain open. The 111th Avenue closure is one of several restrictions on Grand Avenue this week in conjunction with the ADOT Grand Avenue widening project.
