The Maricopa County Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC) and the City of Mesa, is constructing a new bridge over the Salt River.
The new four-lane Gilbert Road Bridge will replace the existing two-lane bridge and low water crossing, which can become flooded during high water flows in the Salt River. Located on Gilbert Road between Thomas Road and State Route 87 (Beeline Highway), the bridge will be built in phases and provide two northbound and two southbound lanes. The project includes new pavement, signage and improved drainage in the project area.
Occasional lane restrictions can be anticipated during construction. One lane of travel for both north- and southbound traffic will be accommodated during the construction to ensure a connection to State Route 87.
In the event a full closure occurs due to flooding or water releases by the Salt River Project, MCDOT will provide recommended alternative routes for travel.
Gilbert Road Bridge construction is anticipated to be completed in 2025.
