The contractor has completed pipeline construction on Elgin Street and 166th Street from Fairview Street to Higley Road for the Tankersley water-line replacement project.

Roads remain open during this work; however, a flagman may be in place to assist in managing traffic. Trenched areas are covered with steel plates during off-work hours to protect the work zone.

The traffic-impacting project replaces and upgrades the water mains, individual water services and fire hydrants of the former Tankersley Water System in the area generally located between Greenfield and Higley roads, and Pecos and Frye roads.

The $6.16 million project began in September 2021 and is expected to be completed in September 2022. The town of Gilbert is funding it.
