Residents who live in the area of Val Vista Drive from Riggs to Appleby Roads are invited to a neighborhood meeting to learn about and provide input about a project that will impact their neighborhoods. The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Jan. 16 at Perry Library, 1965 E. Queen Creek Road in Gilbert.
The Town of Gilbert is in the process of designing improvements to Val Vista Drive from Riggs Road to Appleby Road as a major arterial road. Improvements will include the widening of Val Vista Drive to three travel lanes and a bicycle lane in each direction, with a raised, landscaped median with turn lanes at appropriate locations.
Improvements also include storm drain facilities; median street lighting; conversion of the temporary span wire traffic signals at Ocotillo Road and at Chandler Heights Road to permanent, fully developed signals; waterline adjustments and stubs as necessary for the water distribution system; relocation of private irrigation facilities, RWCD lateral crossings and coordination of other utility facility relocations; and modification of signing and pavement marking beyond the project limits to accommodate the change in conditions. For information call (480) 898-4090.
