Removal of asphalt, paving to take place along Baseline Road over next 2 weeks

The city of Mesa is telling drivers to expect delays beginning Nov. 5 as crews undertake milling and paving operations along Baseline Road from 24th Street in Mesa or Burk Street in Gilbert to the Consolidated Canal.

The work is part of Mesa’s capital improvement project to improve Baseline Road running along the Gilbert border. Milling, which is the removal of existing asphalt, and paving operations will be complete by Nov. 19.

Traffic will remain restricted to one lane, and speed limits will be reduced during the two-week time frame.

Improvements from the project include constructing new or upgrading curbs, gutters, sidewalks and ramps, providing three lanes in each direction, bike lanes, new asphalt pavement, raised center medians, landscaping and street lighting. Other improvements include the installation of a new storm drain and water main.

The project, which has a cost of up to $3.9 million, is expected to be complete with the next few weeks, according to the city. Mesa is funding the project.
