The recently approved Rancho Mercado development could be the key to Surprise’s long sought “northern passage,” at least down the road.
Developer William Lyon Homes has agreed to build two lanes of Happy Valley Road in each direction. This new road will go far beyond the boundaries of Rancho Mercado.
The expanded Happy Valley will link 163rd Avenue to its current western terminus south of the Rancho Cabrillo development in unincorporated Maricopa County.
