Lanes are affected as crews complete the water-distribution system in the Power and Pecos roads area.

Construction is anticipated to be complete in late January.


Traffic restrictions will be on Power Road’s southbound lanes for most of the project. There will be minor traffic restrictions on Pecos when the water line crosses over from Power to the north side of Pecos.

This water line will support the growth and development of the surrounding areas and provide reliable pressure and supply as demands in the area grow.

The $2.24 million project is being paid for through Gilbert water funds.
