Gilbert Road Improvements - Queen Creek Road to Riggs Road
Project Owner: City of Chandler
This is a multi-phase, CM@R project for the City of Chandler that began with Gilbert Road Improvements - Germann Road to Queen Creek Road in 2008.
Phase 1 of the Gilbert Road Improvements - Queen Creek Road to Riggs Road project was completed in December 2012. Improvements were made from south of Queen Creek Road to 1,000 LF south of Ocotillo Road and on Ocotillo Road from Norman Way to the east side of Gilbert Road. Those improvements included removals and wet utility improvements (reclaimed water, potable water, sewer adjustments, private irrigation, RWCD irrigation, and a PRV station) as well as surface items: new curb & gutter, paving, sidewalk, concrete bus bays, drainage, SRP overhead to underground conversion, street lighting, City traffic signals at the intersection of Gilbert Road and Ocotillo Road and ITS, landscaping, signing, and striping.
The current phases of Gilbert Road Improvements - Queen Creek Road to Riggs Road include wet utility infrastructure improvements from the previously completed phase south of Ocotillo Road to Riggs Road and roadway improvements to south of Chandler Heights Road.
Wet Utility Infrastructure Improvements: The scope of wet utility services includes installation of jacking and boring at two RWCD piped crossings and one canal crossing, connecting to existing services, vertical realignments to avoid conflicts, installation of valves and hydrants, and relocation of hydrants. In addition to the pipe lines on Gilbert Road, the scope of work also includes installation of a 10” well line on Wood Drive from Gilbert Road to the City’s well site.
