The city of Chandler is planning improvements (including new bike lanes) along some its major transportation and development corridors.
The Chandler City Council is set to approve a $7.45 million reimbursement deal with the Maricopa Association of Governments for design and construction costs for improvements to Lindsey Road between Hunt Highway to Ocotillo Road.
The reimbursement comes from Proposition 400 funds. That is the regional sales tax that helps fund transportation projects in Maricopa County.
The improvements include adding bike and turn lanes, new streetlights as well as ADA, median strip, and sidewalk improvements. The East Valley area has seen new developments and growth.
The Chandler City Council is also slated to approve a $4 million plan for improvements along Alma School Road between Pecos and Germann roads.
That project also entails a $4 million reimbursement deal with MAG through Prop. 400 sales tax revenue. The total cost of the project is $5.1 million.
The Council is also scheduled to vote at a Thursday on paying the Salt River Project utility more than $109,200 to relocate electrical wire and streetlights to allow for new bike lanes to be installed on McClintock Drive and Kyrene Road.
