Gilbert Road reconstruction project reaches paving portion

Construction continues this week for the Gilbert Road Improvements project from Guadalupe to Baseline roads.

Paving of the surface course, or top layer, of asphalt on Gilbert Road from north of Guadalupe Road to Baseline Road is taking place this week.

This work began Aug. 21 and will continue for the remainder of the week, beginning at 9 p.m. each night.

Crews paved the outside lanes by the curbs Wednesday night. They will do the southbound inside lanes Thursday night and the northbound inside lanes Friday night.

Gilbert Road will remain open for travel during this work with lane restrictions and possible left turn restrictions in place.

As this activity crosses side streets and driveways, there may be brief periods where access is not permitted; however, the contractor will make every effort to expedite this activity. Officers and/or flaggers will be onsite to assist in managing traffic during this activity.

Concrete crews are also working this week to complete remaining driveways in the project area, and installation of palm trees and decomposed granite will take place in the median islands in the center of Gilbert Road.

Once paving is complete, crews next week will stripe the roadway and work to adjust utilities, such as manholes and valves, to make them flush with the new asphalt surface.

Access to businesses and residences is being maintained during this work.
