The restriction is part of a City of Mesa project that affects Gilbert right of way. The lane closure will be up during the duration of this phase, which will be at least a month.
The Mesa project has crews making improvements along Baseline Road from Burk Street on the Gilbert side/24th Street on the Mesa side to the Consolidated Canal. The project includes raised medians, street lighting, landscaping, traffic signals, new storm drains and water main segments.
In that project, sidewalk improvements are ongoing. Over the next few weeks, crews will be installing the new storm drain from west of Corrine Drive to just east of Silverado Road.
The contractor began grading on April 8 for the installation of new curb, gutter and sidewalks on the east side of Lindsay Road, south of Baseline Road. Traffic is being reduced to one lane in each direction with intermittent left-turn prohibitions throughout the project.
The project, which began in February, is scheduled to be completed at the end of May. Mesa is paying between $3.6 million and $3.9 million to do the work.
