Members of the project team, MCDOT, and the Town of Gilbert gather to celebrate the successful completion of another roadway improvement project.
Achen-Gardner Construction completed the Williams Field Road Improvements Project in August 2012. The project team and members of the public gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony at Fry's Shopping Center at 9 a.m. on September 6, 2012. Among those in attendance were Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Director John Hauskins, Gilbert Vice Mayor John Sentz and Mayor John Lewis, Achen-Gardner Construction (AGC) Vice President Dan Spitza, AGC Project Manager Mike Candelaria, and AGC Project Superintendent Scott Colbath.
This project included roadway widening and drainage improvements along the 1.5-mile segment of Williams Field Road between Gilbert Road and the Eastern Canal. Williams Field Road was widened to a continuous six-lane roadway (three travel lanes in each direction) throughout the project limits. Additional improvements included the installation of new curb, gutter, sidewalk, street lighting, landscaping, retention basins, storm drains, relocating waterline and hydrants, demolition and reconstruction/widening of the Eastern Canal Bridge, and intersection improvements at Lindsay Road. The project also included the installation of an equestrian path along the north side of Williams Field from approximately 700-feet east of Gilbert Road to Lindsay Road.
