Work this weekend, which began at 9 a.m. Sept. 27 and will run until 5 a.m. Sept. 30, is on the west portion of the intersection. Right turns from Baseline to northbound Higley will be permitted.
Work also will restrict traffic from 9 a.m. Oct. 4 through 5 a.m. Oct. 7. That work will take place on the east portion of the intersection. Rights turns from Baseline to southbound Higley will be permitted.
The town streets project is intended to improve and reconstruct the intersection of Baseline and Higley.
The contractor is continuing traffic signal work at the intersection of Higley and Baseline and at the intersection of Baseline and San Benito Drive. Construction has also started on median improvements and intersection pavement repairs.
The town estimates the project is approximately 60% done. The project started March 11 and is scheduled to be completed in December. The $5.03 million cost of the project is being paid by the town of Gilbert as well as through developer contributions and regional funds.
