CHANDLER, AZ – Traffic in a Downtown Chandler alley will become one-way, northbound only beginning Wednesday, August 31. The alley currently is open to two-way traffic, and runs north/south from Commonwealth Ave. to Boston St. parallel to San Marcos Commons on the Historic Square.

The traffic change is part of a pilot program that the Downtown Chandler Community Partnership (DCCP) is testing to consolidate solid waste services for downtown businesses. One-way traffic will accommodate solid waste trucks in the alley, allowing businesses to receive more frequent pick-ups in a single bin, rather than individual trash bins for each business.

The DCCP will test the consolidated solid waste service for six months and work with downtown businesses to evaluate whether it will work in other areas.
