In the month of August, there will be several construction projects in Peoria. Starting Aug. 3, Southwest Gas will be installing gas pipeline on Beardsley Road at the New River Bridge east of 81st Avenue. Eastbound Beardsley will be reduced down to one lane with traffic control in place for 24 hours a day. The work is expected to be complete in four or five weeks. Starting Aug. 4, Happy Valley Parkway will be reduced to one lane in each direction for asphalt paving Aug. 4 (from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. for westbound traffic and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for eastbound traffic) and Aug. 8 and 9 (5 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day). Striping of the roadway is expected to take place the week of Aug. 10. Westbound Happy Valley Parkway will be closed at the Agua Fria Bridge at night on Aug. 5 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., for crews to remove the temporary concrete barrier. Eastbound Happy Valley Parkway will remain open for travel during this time.
