Rimrock Avenue closures begin

Shoppers going to Walmart, Lowes and other nearby stores at U.S. Highway 6&50 will have to find a different way into the Rimrock Marketplace shopping center.

That’s because road crews will be closing the entrance to the shopping center for the next week.

Improvements to the intersection are part of the newest phase of construction on the highway between downtown and the Mesa Mall.

The closure will not impact traffic traveling along the highway, nor shoppers entering the parking lot of Sam’s Club across the street.

Shoppers looking to patronize the Rimrock stores will have to enter the complex either from the frontage road from the west, or via American Way around American Family Furniture to the east.

Starting today and continuing until Friday, construction crews will be paving the Rimrock Avenue intersection with cement.

The following week, when the intersection is reopened, crews will be paving sections of the highway, beginning with the eastbound lanes.

That work will continue in and around the intersection well into next week.

Following all that, crews will begin to pour concrete for sidewalks, intersection islands, medians and eyebrows that are all part of the improvements.

The work is part of an overall project to widen the highway between 25 Road and Rimrock Avenue.

The project consists of expanding the highway to three lanes in each direction, replacing the asphalt driving surface with concrete, burying overhead utility lines, improving storm-sewer lines and installing medians, lighting and landscaping and sidewalks.

Construction is expected to be completed by mid-December.
