Upcoming paving work will affect traffic on Lindsay Road as part of the Germann Road improvements project.

Scheduled to begin Aug. 10, crews will pave the southbound lanes of Lindsay Road, from the Arizona Self Storage Facility to Germann Road, and from Germann to Lovebird Lane.

Following the paving activity, crews will adjust utilities, such as manholes and valves to make them flush with the new asphalt surface.

Lindsay Road traffic will then be shifted to southbound lanes onto the new asphalt pavement from approximately the Arizona Storage facility through the Germann Road intersection to Lovebird Lane.

While traffic is shifted to the west side of the road, no left turns will be permitted for northbound or southbound Lindsay Road traffic onto Germann Road.

Initial work will include removal of asphalt and subsurface materials on Lindsay Road from Germann Road to the Arizona Storage facility, and grading activity for concrete work will begin soon thereafter.

Electric crews are working on the Lindsay Road and Germann Road intersection to relocate and install traffic signal foundations and stand poles at the intersection over the next couple of weeks. Similar work is also taking place at Germann Road and Quartz Street.

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

The project area includes Germann Road, from Mustang Drive—1/2 mile west of Lindsay Road—to Val Vista Drive, and also Lindsay Road, from south of Germann Road to south of the Loop 202-Santan Freeway.

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, traffic signal improvements, and relocation or installation of utilities.

The $27.43 million project is being paid for by the town of Gilbert, Maricopa Association of Governments and developer contributions. It is scheduled for completion in January 2022.
