More than 60,000 residents now live in the community of Queen Creek, Arizona in Pinal county. The actual City of Queen Creek is bordered on the west by Power Road and is located in Maricopa County, and the community of Queen Creek, or County area, continues east to Florence - or thereabouts. Several options have been discussed as to where the freeway would be routed. Two out of the three would have gone over existing homes and created complete disharmony among the homeowners. Today's East Valley Tribune posted a detailed article, and I've included the link and a map below.
The freeway will be in close proximity to the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and connect to the 202 in Queen Creek, and the 60 at Florence.
Queen Creek is an area that will continue to grow with new homes. Many new home builders are still going strong, and the Merrill Ranch of Anthem, just west of the town of Florence is slated for growth like that in northern Maricopa County. A 55+ community along with a family community as well as golf courses, swimming pools, and more are either in the process of being included or are already completed.
Queen Creek is also a community with acreage, horse properties, and beautiful open country.
