Avondale to host Public Open House Meeting for proposed Thomas Road Crossing design
The City of Avondale is currently evaluating alternatives to provide an east/west crossing at the Agua Fria River along the Thomas Road alignment within the city. The city is hosting two Public Open House meetings this month to discuss the proposed Thomas Road Crossing at the Aqua Fria River (Rancho Santa Fe Boulevard to 119th Avenue). Community members are encouraged to attend the public meeting to learn more about the proposed improvements, view design concepts and provide input on the project.
The dates of the meetings are Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020; 6 -7:30 p.m. at Estrella Mountain Community College (Estrella Conference Center, 3000 N Dysart Rd, Avondale) and Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020; 6 - 7:30 p.m. at Canyon Breeze Elementary School (Cafeteria, 11675 W Encanto Blvd, Avondale).
Proposed alternatives include:
• A new bridge superstructure
• An at-grade crossing between the existing levees
• Each alternative includes widening Thomas Road to four lanes with sidewalks, bicycle lanes and street lighting
