Continuing: Bell Road Installation and Greenway Road Boring
• The intersection of 31st Street and Bell Road remains closed.
• At this intersection, Bell Road traffic is directed to the north side of Bell Road (westbound lanes), with 1 lane in each direction going east and west.
• On July 6, left turns in all directions will be prohibited, and traffic in the area will be directed to the farthest north and farthest south lanes for approximately one week.
• Bore pits have been excavated at 31st Street and Greenway. “Boring,” or drilling underground, is underway.
During this time, there is no northbound access to 31st Street from Greenway.
• Boring is expected to conclude in late July or early August.
• Business access will be maintained.
Continuing: Pipeline Installation on 32nd Street from Thunderbird Road to Sweetwater Avenue
• Pipeline installation continues at the intersection of 32nd Street and Thunderbird Road.
• Installation will proceed south toward Sweetwater Avenue.
• Traffic is directed to the west side (southbound lanes) of 32nd Street as the active construction area moves south.
Dreamy Draw/Preserve Reminders
• Dreamy Draw Recreation Area remains closed through Fall 2022 for pipeline installation and park renovations.
• Trails west of SR 51 are open.
• Trails east of paved bike path are open.
• Trail 100 is open.
During work in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, the following strategies are being used to minimize environmental disturbance:
• Using adequate water to ensure dust opacity is zero
• Protecting open trenches with fencing and netting to prevent tortoises from entering work areas
• Protecting plants, cacti and trees in place when possible rather than moving them
• Inspecting work areas, equipment and personal vehicles before use to avoid injury to tortoises and other animals

Restorative Yoga at Modified Movement

Louisa & Chuck Ward (pictured below) are trying something different to reduce lower back pain. Chuck’s pain is debilitating sometimes. Restorative Yoga at Modified Movement (32nd Street and Shea) has made an incredible difference, sessions are lead by the owner Ashley Sayaloune. Purposeful focus on painless stretching and strengthening. It is amazing!!!

I saw this article on AZ Family today and thought I would share in case anyone wanted to help one of our local businesses. I admire the work they do for many in our community and it sounds like they need support. Looking forward to when they reopen in August!
