Correction: The name of the contractor company was incorrect and has been updated.

The final stage of the Lindsay Interchange project on the Loop 202-Santan Freeway is slowly progressing as the Arizona Department of Transportation heads toward an August completion of the project.


Construction is complete except for installation of concrete form liners for walls, which were delayed by a Texas storm. Form liners are slowly being received, and the contractor, Haydon Building Co., is installing them as they come, according to Gilbert officials.

When completed, the interchange will provide access to Loop 202.

A frontage road system on the north side of Loop 202-Santan Freeway is also being constructed between Lindsay and Gilbert Road.


Traffic restrictions on Lindsay Road will remain throughout the remainder of the project.

The $18.15 project began in October 2020 is being funded through the town of Gilbert, Maricopa Association of Governments and developer contributions.
