UPDATE circa May 2014--
is again in the news. ADOT is proposing changes at Bell/Grand Ave intersection. Option A is a freeway-style overpass
with on and off ramps. We support this. Our goal is to make Grand Ave a freeway where traffic from Wickenberg
can continue on though the small towns on to Phoenix, Sky Harbor airport or Tucson and back again. The small towns want
to keep traffic for the locals. If this project is approved, Sun City needs to keep at it until there is an elevated
freeway over Sun City with on and off ramps at 99th Av and 111th Av. That would leave Grand Av beneath it to the locals
with their golf carts, mobile wheelchairs and pedestrians. Read our 2008 Grand Freeway Proposal. Except for the contact information, it pretty much
says it all. What is true holds true forever.
circa November 2009--
The widening of Grand Avenue is in progress. There will
be a six-lane highway cutting through Sun City against the desires of the homeowners. We are keeping our rejected and
ignored proposal on The Anne Report to gauge the wisdom of the road planners to ignore us. We predict accidents and
rush hour traffic delays in a nightmare scenario. Here is the information we proposed in 2008:
