As an access point to E-470 for southeast Aurora, Gartrell Road is a critical transportation corridor in Aurora. As traffic volumes through the Gartrell Road and E-470 interchange have increased through the years, so has the need for capacity improvements. To address this need, the city—along with the E-470 Public Highway Authority and the South Aurora Regional Improvement Authority—has contracted with an engineering firm to develop design plans to improve mobility for all types of users through this interchange.

With the design in the early stages, this is an opportunity for the project team to hear feedback from those who drive, walk, bike and use assistive mobility devices through this area.

To provide input on your experience using the Gartrell Road and E-470 interchange, take our survey from Sept. 12 to Oct. 3.

With construction funding still pending, it’s not yet known when construction might start. But completing the project design will enable construction to move forward more quickly once funding has been identified.

In mid-2023, temporary traffic signals are scheduled to be installed to facilitate safer left turns from the E-470 ramp intersections at Gartrell Road. The E-470 Public Highway Authority is funding about $1.2 million for construction. To learn more about E-470's commitment to safety, visit E-470.com.
