The interchange under construction at Lindsay Road and Loop 202-Santan Freeway will be delayed four months, pushing completion to May 2022.

The delay was a result of the winter storm in Texas earlier this year, which caused the contractor to be unable to get the form liner used for the concrete walls of the project.

The $18.15 million project will provide access to Loop 202 and a frontage road system on the north side of Loop 202 between Lindsay and Gilbert Road.

Traffic restrictions on Lindsay will remain throughout the remainder of the project, which is expected to be about six months.


The project is coordinating traffic control with the East Germann Road improvements project. Construction is 85% complete.


The project is being funded by the town of Gilbert, Maricopa Association of Governments and developer contributions. Arizona Department of Transportation is in charge of the project’s construction.
