Drivers on Ironwood Drive between Broadway Road and Apache Trail in Apache Junction can expect to experience periodic restrictions during the summer months. On June 8, local utility companies began relocating their infrastructure and facilities to accommodate the upcoming Ironwood Drive reconstruction project, according to a press release.

The major reconstruction work on Ironwood Drive is scheduled to begin as early as November and is expected to last 120 days.

This project is part of the federal Surface Transportation Program, which is providing the majority of the funding for the project. The total project cost is estimated to be $1.9 million with $1.6 million coming from the federal government and the rest originating from the city of Apache Junction’s Highway User Revenue Fund, according to the release.
