METRO – Gilbert Road Light Rail Extension
Markets:Light Rail/People Movers
The Gilbert Road project is a 1.9-mile extension of light rail on Main Street from Mesa Drive to Gilbert Road that will reduce the existing roadway down to two traffic lanes (one lane in each direction) from the end point of the Central Mesa Extension project, at the intersection of Main Street and Hobson Road, to Main Street and Miller Street. From Miller Street to Lazona Drive, the existing four traffic lanes (two lanes in each direction) and left-turn lanes will be maintained to help offset traffic congestion at Stapley Drive. East of Lazona Drive, Main Street would be narrowed back down to two travel lanes (one lane in either direction) to the intersection of Main Street and Guthrie Street. From Guthrie Street to Gilbert Road the existing four traffic lanes (two lanes in each direction) and turn lanes will be maintained. JV with Stacy Witbeck.
