Roadwork Planned To Prepare For Next Season

Dust control, increases in pedestrian lighting on tap

By Curtis Riggs – Cave Creek and Carefree have major road projects in the works. Cave Creek is putting the finishing touches on a $1.2 million chip seal project to help reduce dust and comply with dust control regulations. The money came out of Cave Creek’s general fund. Carefree has major road work planned on Tom Darlington Drive and Cave Creek Road with crack sealing on the two major arteries – to replace existing bad pavement.

Carefree Town councilman Glenn Miller says, “The road work will be completed by this September.”

Carefree also plans to place seven gas lamp poles near the Town center to increase lighting for pedestrian safety and to attract visitors into the Town center and businesses. Funding for Carefree’s major road projects come from the Town’s extended road improvement program. | CST
