Construction to restrict traffic

On July 7, Scottsdale will begin to construct a new water and sewer main connection under the Arizona Canal just east of the intersection of Scottsdale and Camelback roads.

The connection will provide upgrades to the water distribution system and improve operational dependability and reliability in the downtown area.

Construction will affect travel on the east lanes of Camelback Road, but at least one lane will be open in each direction at all times.

All work is scheduled to be completed by October and will be performed between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For information on this project or upcoming construction, contact project manager Vivek Galav (480) 312-7245 or vgalav@scottsdaleaz.gov.
