662-8150, or visit the “Projects” link at Please slow down and use caution as you travel through these construction areas.

Eastern Area 2 Concrete, Paving & Utility Project– Phase 2:

RMCI continues to use a 15-passenger van to transport pedestrians through the Canyon Road construction site. The van circulates every 5 to 7 minutes while RMCI is working, typically 7 a.m. to 5-7 p.m. depending on the job activity, Monday through Saturday (RMCI will work Saturdays in June). This service for pedestrians will continue until June 28 or when sidewalks are open on both sides of Canyon. Each evening, RMCI will re-establish the pedestrian paths for use.

The van route starts at 9th Street and Canyon Road continuing north on Canyon, making the Nugget, Opal and Piñon Loops. Pedestrians on Nugget, Opal, and Piñon Loops will be picked up in front of their residence. Additional stops include the Pine Street cul-de-sac and Quartz at 6th Street. The route will end at Canyon and 15thStreet. The driver will then turn around and repeat the route in the opposite direction.

Canyon Road between 15th and Rim Road remains closed; the closure may shift as work progresses. Residential access in the immediate closure area will be provided; all others motorists should seek alternate routes.

Canyon Road traffic between Nugget and Rim Road can expect daytime flagging operations with minor delays. Two-way traffic will be restored in this area in the evenings and weekends when work is not occurring.

Pedestrians are asked to use the van service provided.

Mesa Public Library Safety Improvements:

Construction is almost complete with pavement markings expected to be completed early this week. If weather cooperates, the roadway should be open by the end of this week. PLEASE NOTE: When the road reopens, it will be One-Way traffic from west to east. Until the road opens, handicapped parking access remains at the Senior Center and is accessible from Bathtub Row. Pedestrians are urged to use the provided pedestrian pathways and to watch for construction activity.

Cañada del Buey Multi-Use Trail Improvements:

The contractor will be continuing shoulder work along the length of Longview between Bonnie View and Rover.

Western Area Phase 1:

41st and 42nd Streets north of Trinity remain closed to through traffic to allow for milling and trenching. Access to residences as well as services such as mail delivery, emergency services, and trash and recycling collection will be maintained. Residents are asked to maximize use of off-street parking. Any necessary on-street parking should be away from the existing work zone. Work hours will be Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. with possible weekend work if necessary.

White Rock Concrete Replacement:

Sections of concrete curb and gutter will be replaced on Bryce, Mimbres, and Louise beginning on Monday, June 10. Motorists on these streets can expect shoulder work and possible flagging operations resulting in minor delays. On-street parking adjacent to the work areas will be restricted. Work should be completed by the end of the week.

School Moving Modular Buildings Next Week:

The schools will tentatively be moving modular buildings from the Middle School to Aspen Elementary School on June 10th and 13th between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
