Bellemont Access & Safety Improvements Project

What’s New...

August 01, 2020

Work for Phase A of the Bellemont Access & Safety Improvements Project has been completed. 

Groundbreaking for Phase B of the project, which had been scheduled to start this summer, has been pushed to next spring due to unforeseen delays in utility relocation being conducted by utilities. Although Phase B could still start fall, the contractor would only be able to complete the first half of the roundabout before having to shut down for the winter season. Rather than have Bellemont residents and visitors drive through an inactive construction zone during a three- to four-month winter shutdown, the County has instead opted to move the entire project into calendar year 2021.

Project Overview

The Bellemont Access and Safety Improvements Project will address traffic flow and safety issues at the intersection of Transwestern Road, Shadow Mountain Drive and Brannigan Park Road in Bellemont. The project, which will tie into Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) right of way, will be built in two phases: 

Phase A

Phase A of the project included a four-foot shoulder widening of Shadow Mountain Drive to install multimodal lanes between Alpine Road and Pegasus Drive.
