Blasting may begin in Ahwatukee within a few weeks as crews prepare to begin major construction of the South Mountain Freeway.

The Arizona Department of Transportation announced last week that blasting will be needed after all to break down rock in areas west of 24th Street and beyond Desert Foothills Parkway.

Although ADOT’s announcement did not give a timeline for the blasting, department spokesman Dustin Krugel said, “Best guess right now is mid-August.”

The blasting comes at a time when workers are preparing to start building the actual freeway on what had been the eastbound lanes of the old Pecos Road.
