Next phase of ongoing construction affects ASU Polytechnic campus commuters
ASU Polytechnic campus commuters should expect additional traffic delays as the 16-month Power Road Improvement Project has now entered its next phase. For the next several weeks, road construction is restricting traffic to one lane both eastbound and westbound along Williams Field Road, east of Power Road – the primary campus entrance. Flagmen also may be in this area at various times to direct traffic.
As soon as January 2013, the building on the south side of Williams Field Road west of the House of Refuge church will be demolished. The library drop box and U.S. Postal Service mailbox adjacent to that building will be relocated to the southwest corner of Parking Lot 6 near Quad 2. There are two, 20-minute loading zone spaces north of Quads 2 and 3 where patrons may park free of charge to deposit books and mail.
Lane restrictions continue northbound and southbound along Power Road from Ray Road to just south of Williams Field Road.
The City of Mesa is leading the multi-government agency Power Road Improvement Project that 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.
