Crow Canyon Widening Project Underway

Crow Canyon Widening Project

Construction of the Crow Canyon Road Widening Project between Alcosta Boulevard and St. George Road has begun and will continue through Fall 2023.

During construction, we encourage drivers to use alternate routes such as Dougherty Road, Bollinger Canyon Road, and Alcosta Boulevard for a faster trip. There will be a construction speed limit of 30 MPH enforced along Crow Canyon Road within the construction zone and travel will be restricted to one (1) lane in each direction.

This road widening work is a requirement of the Dougherty Valley Settlement Agreement, and is being funded with Developer funds allocated specifically for this Project. The Project will construct one additional travel lane in each direction of Crow Canyon Road, between Alcosta Boulevard and St. George Road.

In addition to the new lanes, the Project includes improved facilities for pedestrians such as: ADA upgrades, crosswalk consolidation, and conversion of sidewalk on the north side into a spacious walking path. Widened bike lanes with buffers and green conflict zone striping will be installed throughout the Project to provide additional delineation between vehicles and cyclists. New vibrant, drought-tolerant landscaping will be installed to enhance the roadway features. Updated traffic signals and streetlights, with the latest equipment and technology, will replace the existing older traffic signals and lighting. The existing lanes will be repaved at the same time as the widening to provide a new, smooth, and durable roadway.

Project completion is scheduled for Fall 2023.
