Power Road Improvements Pecos Road to Santan Freeway
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.
- The new northbound roadway grading continues from Old Pecos
Road to north of Williamsfield Road. Northbound ABC haul in
and fine grading was completed from Old Pecos Road north to the
south well site. Base asphalt paving in this section will be
paved this week. Crews started to pour streetlight
pole foundations and install conduit north on Power Road north
of Ray Road for the City of Mesa. The fiber optic sleeve and
conduit was installed at the Power Road EMF bridge south of
Williamsfield Road. Channel excavation and haul will continue
throughout this week and first part of next week. Storm drain
crews are installing pipe 18 inch and 36 inch storm drain
continues to be installed on the east side of Power Road north
The Northbound RWCD bridge deck was poured on Wednesday May 1,
2013 and continues to cure under blankets placed over the deck. The
northbound EMF bridge pier cap 3 and abutment 2 were poured and
stripped last week. The subcontractor completed the
demolition of existing sidewalk and barrier wall on the
Williamsfield Road EMF bridge. Work is also taking place at
various wall structures through out the project.
Williamsfield Road (north
side) will be down one lane in each direction, from
Power Road east to the round-about. All travel lanes will
be on the south half of the roadway.
Traffic shifted to new southbound alignment from the south split
to Pecos Road with barricade edge lines for north and
southbound. Concrete barrier installed over the double barrel
Flagger will be setup between the EMF Canal and double barrel
box culvert for truck haul.
Right lane closure northbound Power Road for storm drain
installation from Gavelston to Ray Road.
Northbound right lane closure on Power Road from Galveston to

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.
