Meridian Road, from Queen Creek to Germann roads, is now open, providing an additional north-south corridor through Queen Creek.
“The completion of this 1-mile stretch is significant as it now connects Meridian Road from Combs Road all the way to the State Route 24,” stated Queen Creek Vice Mayor Jeff Brown in a press release. “We are committed to better roads ahead and this new roadway is an important step in that effort. We appreciate the continued partnership with Pinal County on these regional projects.”
The project, which began construction in early 2022, includes a new two-lane roadway that extends the recently completed portion of roadway from the State Route 24 to Germann. Both new sections of Meridian were joint projects with Pinal County.
“Projects like this are what it’s all about, working collectively to meet the needs of our residents,” stated Pinal County Supervisor Mike Goodman, in the release. “This was a large undertaking would not have been possible without the tremendous effort put forth by staff at both the town and Pinal County. We also truly appreciate the support of former Mayor (Gail) Barney and all other town council members in seeing this through. This roadway will contribute a great deal to enhancing the quality of life for our residents and the future of this area.”
