Construction on an enhanced reclaimed water vault at the intersection of Recker and Warner roads is expected to be completed in early February, according to the town of Gilbert.

Completion of the reclaimed water vault will eliminate the need for staff to stop traffic several times a week for crews to operate valves in the intersection.


Construction has been restricting traffic lanes both on Warner and Recker roads.


The project, which began in November, cost $715,000 from the town.
