Segments of Apache Junction roads to close temporarily due to repaving

The city of Apache Junction will be paving segments of Baseline Avenue and Idaho Road from March 28 through April 16.

The work will result in the closure of the two streets during this time. Baseline Avenue will be closed from Idaho Road to Winchester Road and Idaho Road from U.S. Highway 60 to Baseline Avenue.

Motorists can use Tomahawk Road to access businesses along Baseline Avenue within the industrial park, including those on Winchester Road. That will also allow drivers on Baseline to access the Arizona Department of Transportation motor vehicle emissions testing facility, the Apache Junction Public Works Department and the city’s Paws and Claws Care Center for animals.

In addition, repaving began March 14 on Ironwood Drive between Broadway to Apache Trail, according to a press release. Work is expected to take about three months.

All construction will be conducted during daylight hours for the safety of construction workers. Any questions related to this project should be directed to the Public Works Department at 480-982-1055.
