August 12 2011After many years of planning prelim

first_imgAugust 12, 2011After many years of planning preliminary work on the new Cordes Junction Interchange is finally about to begin.Excerpts from Heidi Dahms Foster’s report in the local paper BIG BUG NEWS July 27. 2011 edition:“The Arizona Dept. of Transportation on July 15. accepted a bid of $50.9 million from Vastco of Chino Valley and Sundt Construction of Tempe to complete the approximately 2 year project. Construction will begin on August 1. 2011.The Cordes Interchange is a joint venture between Vastco and Sundt. Companies already have begun to relocate utilities at the construction site and Vastco-Sundt has put up a construction trailer and stated amassing needed equipment and materials.ADOT community relations project manager Bill Pederson said that initial construction will not impact travelers for the first couple of month of the project. “In Phase I the contractor constructs a temporary detour, where SR69 comes from Prescott and drivers turn southbound to Phoenix, so they can work on the ramp and area south of I-17 and SR69 to allow crews working space to build the bridge and roadway alignment. That will take place for the first couple of month.”Pederson said ADOT is currently working on a newsletter it will distribute throughout the project to keep the public abreast of traffic news and new developements as they occur.The increase in traffic on Interstate 17 and State Route 69 made reconstruction of the interchange, originally built in the 1960’s, necessary.More than 27,500 vehicles daily use the interchange, ADOT officials said. The ADOT website predicts that traffic will more than double by 2020.Plans for the new interchange include removal of two outdated loop ramps, new structures to carry Prescott-bound traffic over I-17, and construction of a new diamond interchange about a mile north of the existing interchange. The project also will separate high-speed traffic from slower, local Cordes Lakes traffic, Pederson said. “The Interchange will look very different when we’re through”, he said. “The new configuration will be much safer and more functional.””We will post periodic updates on this.last_img read more

McCready votes to protect essential community services funding during historic PPT phaseout

first_img Categories: McCready News,News The Michigan House yesterday approved a package of ten Personal Property Tax (PPT) bills with the support of Rep. Mike McCready, R-Bloomfield Hills, to make sure schools and local communities don’t lose essential revenue during the PPT phase-out. Michigan’s PPT has historically been a detriment to business growth and will continue to be phased out as scheduled. Senate Bills 821-830 reform and simplify the personal property tax system, encouraging job growth in Michigan.“It is a responsible piece of legislation to ensure there will be no additional costs for Michigan’s hard-working taxpayers during this welcome transition,” McCready said. “100 percent reimbursement for our schools and local governments is a result of a revenue shift, not a new tax, which is why this package is a solid compromise for all.”Under PPT, Michigan businesses pay taxes on equipment, machinery and furniture among other purchases, which puts the state at a disadvantage when attracting and retaining additional jobs in comparison to surrounding states that lack a similar tax.“The last thing we want to do is give businesses a reason to set up shop outside our border,” McCready said. “We are making Michigan more competitive regionally, which in turn will foster job growth and encourage economic expansion.”The collaborative, job-growing bill package received no opposition in committee from state lawmakers or local governments, and garnered overwhelming bipartisan support on the floor. The bills now return to the Senate for consideration.### 26Mar McCready votes to protect essential community services, funding during historic PPT phase-outlast_img read more
