Vehicles will be permitted up to the intersection but will not be able to travel through the intersection.

Resident and business access will be maintained. Detour signage will be in place to direct travelers around the closure.

During the week of June 8 during, crews will be working night hours to paint traffic signal poles at the intersection. The work will take approximately one week to complete.

The intersection will remain open for travel during this work with lane restrictions near the work area, and law enforcement officers on-site to assist with traffic.


After its competition, restrictions in the intersection are anticipated to be minimal, town officials said.

The work is part of a larger project to improve Lindsay Road from Pecos Road, including the intersection, to the Loop 202 underpass to major arterial standards. The improvements include additional lanes, a raised median, sidewalks and streetlights.

Following the intersection work, crews will complete remaining components or conduct any clean-up or punch list activities.

Landscape crews continue work in the project area to install remaining decomposed granite, landscape irrigation and plantings as part of the project

Access to businesses and residences is being maintained during the project.

The $12.6 million project, which began in May 2019, is anticipated to be completed in July. Town of Gilbert bonds, Maricopa Association of Government funds and developer contributions are paying for the work.
