Vistancia residents and visitors will enjoy a new alternate route to the community’s neighborhoods and shopping centers located along Vistancia Boulevard.

At just under a mile, El Mirage Road construction from Vistancia Boulevard to Lone Mountain Parkway is complete. The new stretch of the four-lane roadway and adjacent bike lane also offers easier access to Lone Mountain Parkway’s Loop 303 freeway entrances.

In 2012, the Lone Mountain Parkway exit 127 opened on Loop 303 to eliminate approximately 15 minutes of travel time to and from the 7,100-acre master-planned community, provide closer access to Valley employers, entertainment, dining and major retail centers in addition to improving regional traffic flow.

The addition of El Mirage Road also connects to the existing Ridgeline Road and The Village at Vistancia’s three newest neighborhoods – Catalonia by Ashton Woods Homes, Chaparral Canyon and Mesquite Trail by Meritage Homes, and the future 500-acre commercial core.

“The opening of El Mirage Road provides another benefit to our residents and individuals considering a move to Vistancia,” said Mark Hammons, vice president/general manager of Vistancia. “We’ve worked diligently with City of Peoria to complete this more convenient route that offers additional connectivity to our existing retail, future commercial core and neighborhoods.”
