Some traffic shifts will happen starting April 19 in conjunction with a road project improving Germann Road between Mustang and Val Vista drives and Lindsay Road between Germann and south of Loop 202-Santan Freeway.

Germann Road traffic west of Lindsay Road, between Silverado Court and Mustang, will be shifted to the correct sides of the street (one lane in each direction) for work to take place in the middle of Germann on median island installation, landscaping and brick pavers.

Lindsay traffic south of the Germann intersection will be shifted to the east side of the road onto new asphalt pavement. Crews recently paved between Lovebird Lane and Germann.

Traffic on Lindsay will still be one lane in each direction. The shift will allow work to take place on the west side of Lindsay.

Grading crews will work on the west side of Lindsay, north of Germann, on the road’s existing west shoulder to grade this area and prepare for curb, gutter and driveway reconstruction.


As driveways are scheduled, coordination will take place with individual properties to ensure access is provided during this work.

Pipeline crews also are preparing for upcoming work on Germann near Val Vista for sewer pipeline and water pipeline installation or realignment in the near future.

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

The project’s improvements include widening Germann and Lindsay roads to three lanes in each direction with a center turn lane/median island. The project also includes curb, gutter, bike lane, sidewalk, street lighting and traffic signal improvements and relocation or installation of utilities.

The $27.43 million project, which began in October 2020 and is anticipated to finish in January 2022, is being paid for by the town of Gilbert, Maricopa Association of Governments and developer contributions.
