Mesa and Gilbert flank each side of Power Road, and the cities are joining together to plan the improvement of Power Road - widening it into four lanes from the 202 to Pecos - a stretch of about 2.7 miles. Could this be part of our job stimulus dollars at work? Guess that could be up for debate, but it is a "good" thing nevertheless.
As the map reflects, this is a busy hub area since one way into the airport is along this corridor. Right now, the road narrows down into just two lanes, so the improvement will be a welcome relief to those home owners heading for Power Ranch, for Seville, and other communities south of the 202.
Mesa and Gilbert leaders are planning for the corridor to be the "knowledge corridor."
One day, we will all look back and remember when Power Road was just a rural two lane road. As the cities grow, and the people move into this beautiful area of the southeast valley, wider and better roads will definitely be something better to serve the communities south of the 202.
