Median Project Median Landscape Conversion & Water Conservation Project
67th Ave. Roadway Median (South of Beardsley Rd.)
Glendale’s Transportation Division and the city’s Water Services Department have teamed up to launch a pilot water conservation project to convert a portion of existing water-dependent grass area located within the center median on 67th Avenue, just south of Beardsley Rd., to water-conserving artificial turf.

Over the next several weeks, crews will be on site performing median landscape conversion activities;minor lane restrictions or temporary lane closures can be anticipated. Along with the removal of the existing grass and irrigation system and installation of artificial turf, work includes the installation of a new, more efficient irrigation system to provide water to the existing pine trees using the current water source. Work on the pilot median conversion project is slated to be completed by late June. View Flyer

Arrowhead

Change to Traffic Patterns
The City of Glendale Transportation Division, with input from the Glendale Police Department, have installed signs to restrict left turn movements into and out of the Arrowhead Plaza/Denaro Village Property driveway on southbound 67th Avenue south of the Loop 101.  Restrictions are currently in effect weekdays between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.  A left turning option will still exist at the traffic signal at Behrend Dr during the restriction period.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. However, the City is determined to maintain traffic mobility and safety along our 700 plus mile street network.

Pavement management

FY 2016/2017 Pavement Management Projects 
The Pavement Management Program (PMP) consists of the rehabilitation of poor and deteriorating streets within the City of Glendale with the application of common treatments as well as other pavement preservations methods. The plan to extend the overall life-expectancy of the City of Glendale’s streets through the most efficient and cost-saving measures is carried out through a series of pavement preservation projects. The FY 2016-17 PMP Mill & Overlay (M&O), Crack Seal and Slurry Seal projects are presently concentrated in the southern portion of the City.

For complete details on the PMP projects, please download the flyer here.

Yellow Arrows
(Click image to enlarge)

Flashing Yellow Arrow
The use of flashing yellow arrows (FYA) at signalized intersections to control left turning traffic was recently approved by the federal government after studies concluded that flashing arrows provide numerous benefits including:

  • Enhanced understanding by motorists when using arrows instead of solid green indications;
  • Enhanced safety; and
  • Improved operation by minimizing delays.

FYA at a traffic signal includes a flashing yellow arrow signal head in addition to the standard red, yellow and green arrow heads over the left-turn lane. When illuminated, the flashing yellow arrow allows waiting motorists to make a left-hand turn after yielding to oncoming traffic. Otherwise, the new traffic signals work the same as traditional signals. The City of Glendale has begun a program to convert left-turn movements at various signalized intersections to FYA operation with the purpose of improving safety and operations.  Current locations with flashing yellow arrows include:

  • 59th and Olive Avenues (during nighttime and weekends)
  • 51st and Peoria Avenues
  • 59th Avenue and Union Hills Drive
  • 51st and Glendale Avenues
  • 67th Avenue and Deer Valley Road
  • Dysart Road and Glendale Avenue

A total of 22 additional major arterial intersections throughout the City are in various stages of design and will be converted over the next 18 months.  The remaining 23 FYA candidate intersections will be designed using federal safety funds, with construction funding not currently identified - view map here.
