Chandler Heights Road Improvement Project: McQueen to Gilbert roads

Learn more about the Chandler Heights Road Improvement Project, Gilbert Road to Val Vista Drive.

(Project Nos. ST1614.401 / CHN0240D / T009901C)

The City of Chandler has contracted with Granite Construction and Ardurra Group for construction which began in August to widen Chandler Heights Road to a minimum of four lanes (two lanes in each direction), from McQueen to Gilbert Road. Improvements include construction of raised medians, bike lanes, center turn lanes, sidewalks, curb/gutter, landscaping, and utility relocations. 

The project also includes drainage improvements such as retention basins and concrete scuppers to accommodate future drainage needs in the project area. In addition, there will be improvements to traffic signals and the traffic signal interconnect, as well as new LED street lighting and conversion of overhead electric to underground. 

Construction is currently expected to be complete in Summer 2024.
