Project Number 07-066-001
The City of Mesa has selected
Haydon Building Corp. as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR)
for this project. This project has been split into two
Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) projects. There is still work included in GMP #1
that needs to be completed to coincide with the Roosevelt Water Conservation
District's (RWCD) dry up period. The work in GMP #2 includes the majority of
the road work and began on June 18, 2012.
- On Power Road north of Galveston the center median and
parkway landscaping and mandrelling of fiber optic conduit
continues. Retention basin excavation and material haul off
started behind Quick Trip. Between Galveston and Williamsfield
ABC placement and roadway grading last
week. The catch basin were formed and poured as well as the
median curb and gutter hand piece pours. Installation of
streetlight and fiber optic conduit continues and foundations
for traffic signal A poles and intersection street lights poured
at Williamsfield and southbound Power Road. Installation of
roadway signs progress through out the project.
From Williamsfield to Pecos Road landscaping, accent lighting,
roadway signs and headwall construction are taking place. 9 inch
grouted rip rap installation was completed in the drainage
channel south of Williamsfield. The deep sewer operation
continues north of Pecos Road.
Construction on this project began in June
2012 and is expected to be completed by April 2014.
This project is a partnership between the City of Mesa, the Town
of Gilbert, and the Maricopa County Department of Transportation
(MCDOT), with Mesa acting as the lead agency for design,
right-of-way acquisition and construction.
Power Road is a major arterial street, which
currently has two lanes of traffic in each direction. This
project is approximately 2.7 miles, beginning on the south side
of the interchange with the Santan Freeway, and ending at the
north side of the Pecos Road intersection. The proposed improvements
include widening the road to three lanes in each direction with
a raised median and full intersection improvements at Ray Road
and Williams Field Road.
