Checkered crosswalks installed along Avondale Blvd beginning February 12

Twice a year, Avondale is the host city for thousands of race fans who come from all to experience the thrill of NASCAR at Phoenix Raceway. This year, in anticipation of the 2020 NASCAR Championship Weekend scheduled for Nov. 6 to 8, Avondale is rolling out the red carpet for race fans – in the form of checkered crosswalks along Avondale Boulevard.

Contractor crews working for the city of Avondale will be installing checkered crosswalks in eight locations along Avondale Boulevard, the major arterial leading to the Phoenix Raceway track. This is in addition to two sets of checkered crosswalks already installed at Van Buren St and Coldwater Springs Blvd, as well as crosswalks at the Avondale Civic Center campus.

This work will take approximately eight days, will occur overnight, and is scheduled to occur between February 12 and February 21, 2020. The checkered crosswalks will be placed across Avondale Blvd. at Maricopa Street, Buckeye Road (MC 85), Durango Street, Whyman Street, and Lower Buckeye Road. Every effort will be made to provide traffic control that minimizes interruptions to normal traffic flows.

For questions or more information, call the City of Avondale at 623.333.4221.
