Power Road Improvement Project affects ASU Polytechnic campus

The City of Mesa is leading the multi-government agency Power Road Improvement Project that directly will affect ASU Polytechnic campus commuters and visitors. The first phase of this 16-month project begins July 2. This project significantly will affect traveling to and from the Polytechnic campus, but will not bring added detours or delays while moving around on campus streets.

Construction is slated to take place near the public end of the golf driving range – on the east side of Power Road on Williams Field Road – until approximately Aug. 13. During this time, traffic will be re-routed around the construction area to reach the driving range. Range access will continue, and appropriate signage will be in place during construction.

The larger Power Road Improvement Project spans Power Road from south of the Loop 202 Santan Freeway to the north side of Pecos Road. Construction includes widening Power Road to three lanes in each direction with a raised median and full intersection improvements at Ray and Williams Field roads. Information about work beginning on the intersections of Power and Ray roads and Power and Williams Field roads currently is unavailable.

These two intersections, however, are primary access points to the Polytechnic campus. Visitors and commuters to the campus are advised to regularly check The City of Mesa Traffic Restriction Alerts and Closures web page for updates. Sun Devils with Facebook and Twitter accounts also are encouraged to find and follow The City of Mesa at “mctraffic.”

ASU Parking and Transit Services (PTS) will continue to provide project updates to the ASU community as it receives them from the city. Look for more information about the Power Road Improvement Project in future editions of PTS News, as well as on the ASU Transit Facebook page and on the @ASUtransit Twitter feed.
