Peoria Avenue: Citrus Road to Cotton Lane

Thank you for your interest in the Peoria Avenue project. MCDOT is doing a scoping study to determine what roadway improvements are needed to address future capacity, drainage, connection to SR303, and driveway access along the Peoria Avenue corridor.

Alternative 1
The existing north curb and shared use path to remain. This alternative will provide raised median with intermittent access points (median breaks), as well as roundabouts at Peoria/Citrus and Peoria/175th Ave., and a traffic signal at Peoria/Cotton.

Characteristics include:

  • Reduces roadway flooding
  • Reduces traffic backed up at intersections
  • Slower traffic at roundabouts
  • Easier to get in and out of properties - vehicles can make a U-turn at roundabout
  • Requires exception by Maricopa Water District for easement configuration

Alternative 2
The existing north curb and shared use path to be removed and reconstructed. This alternative will provide raised median with intermittent access points (median breaks), as well as a roundabout at Peoria/175th Ave., and traffic signals at Peoria/Citrus and Peoria/Cotton.

  • Reduces traffic backed up at intersections
  • Medians only at traffic signals – more access points (median breaks) for adjacent properties 
  • Possible increased traffic may cause delays entering or exiting properties adjacent to Peoria Ave
  • Requires exception by Maricopa Water District for easement configuration

No Build Option

Characteristics include:

  • No additional County Paving at this time
  • Existing historical flooding of roadway will continue
  • Existing pavement and barriers will remain
  • Possible traffic delays at intersections
  • Incompatible with corridor west or east of project limits including future development
  • Possible increased traffic may cause delays entering or exiting properties adjacent to Peoria Ave
