TIMP Project Highlight: Ocotillo Road Asphalt Replacement

Pinal County’s Road Maintenance and Improvement Fund provides the essential revenue for transportation projects not only in the county, but also to our cities and towns.  In fact, since its renewal in 2005, the fund has provided nearly $350,000 to the Town of Queen Creek for essential transportation improvements. 

One of the key projects funded by the program was the asphalt pavement replacement on Ocotillo Road adjacent to the Ironwood Crossing subdivision.  Ironwood Crossing was constructed prior to 2010 – including the half-street of Ocotillo Road. Until 2022, it was the only improved pavement on this heavy-travelled section of roadway. 

Over the twelve years of significant use, the road began to deteriorate, and portions started to disintegrate (also known as raveling).  

The Town implemented a capital improvement project to upgrade the facility to a five-lane roadway after annexation. The voter approved funding was used as part of the maintenance program to replace previously build section (which would have risked otherwise being excluded) and created a seamless improvement for the driving public.
