Project Overview:  Construction is complete for improvements to Gilbert Road, from Queen Creek Road to Ocotillo Road, which were completed during the first phase of the Gilbert Road Improvements Project.

Construction has begun for the next phase of improvements, the widening of Gilbert Road, from Ocotillo Road to just south of Chandler Heights Road.  It should be noted that, while the widening extends to just south of Chandler Heights Road, construction will be taking place as far south as Riggs Road for installation of water, sewer and reclaimed water pipeline.

The first phase of the project widened Gilbert Road between Queen Creek Road and Ocotillo Road from two lanes to six lanes (three lanes in each direction), and included landscaped medians, bike lanes, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and extensive work on water, reclaimed water, and sewer pipe lines.

The current phase of the Gilbert Road Improvements Project includes:

*     Widening Gilbert Road to four lanes (two lanes in each direction) from Ocotillo Road to just south of Chandler Heights Road, transitioning to three lanes north and southbound at the Gilbert Road/Chandler Heights Road intersection.

*  Widening the Gilbert Road/Chandler Heights Road intersection to two lanes in each direction for Chandler Heights Road.

*    Remaining improvements at the Gilbert Road/Ocotillo Road intersection.

*      Improvements will also include landscaped medians, bike lanes, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and any utility relocations necessary for the improvements.

*       Dedicated right turn lanes, bike lanes and Americans with Disabilities Act improvements, such as installation of handicap ramps at corners, in the project area.

*       Excavation of retention basins in the project area to accommodate stormwater flows.

*     Access to homes and businesses will be maintained throughout construction.

*       Please be cautious when driving through construction zones, and please continue to patronize your local businesses during this construction.

Achen-Gardner Construction is the contractor for the project which is tentatively scheduled to be completed June 2014.
