Higley & Williams Field Road Improvements (ST062) Project INFO
You are being updated on our progress with the Town of Gilbert’s Higley & Williams Field Road Improvements (ST062) Project.
Since your business, residence, or organization is located near this project, we’d like to provide some tentative construction information. We will do our best to provide the most current information; however, please remember that construction schedules sometimes need to be adjusted due to weather, utility coordination, or various other factors. Should you have questions, comments or concerns regarding this project, please don’t hesitate to contact our project hotline at 480.898.4090.
Work is nearing completion as part of the Higley and Williams Field Road Improvements Project. As part of this work, crews will be working this week to complete final concrete work, asphalt milling (removal of asphalt to prepare for paving) and crack sealing existing pavement to prepare for final paving.
Scheduled for Sunday, November 24th, Higley Road will be CLOSED north and south of Williams Field Road for paving crews to apply the final course (top layer) of asphalt to Williams Field Road. To accommodate this work, Williams Field Road traffic will be permitted to travel through the intersection (no turns permitted); however, there will be no access to Higley Road from Williams Field Road, and no access to Williams Field Road from Higley Road (see diagram).
Scheduled for November 25-27, crews will pave the final course (top layer) of asphalt to Higley Road. Higley Road will remain open with access to Williams Field Road during this work, however, please be prepared for delays when traveling through the intersection.
Scheduled for the week of December 2nd, crews will be adjusting utilities, such as manholes and valves, to make them flush with the new asphalt surface and slurry sealing existing pavement.
Scheduled for the week of December 9th, crews will be striping the roadway, and traffic control should be removed once the striping is completed.
In addition, to paving activities, crews will be working in the project area to complete any landscape irrigation and landscaping, and any clean-up or punchlist items that are necessary.
On behalf of the project team, we would like to thank you for your patience during this construction.
While driving through construction can sometimes be challenging, please continue to patronize your businesses at the Higley/Williams Field intersection.

High School Parents,
I am writing today to share with you a change in our practice at the high school regarding deliveries to students.
Deliveries will no longer be accepted for any items. In order to ensure a safe and sanitary environment that supports and maintains the health and welfare of all of our students, they are expected to come prepared for the school day. Our offices are not equipped with the necessary equipment and staffing to maintain the amount of delieveries that were recieved daily during previous years. In the past, many items were not picked up by the students which left the administrative office responsible for these items. It is equally difficult to accommodate deliveries with all the other activity that takes place in the administrative office.
As a reminder, our high school is a closed campus. Please visit with your student about what that means in terms of not being able to leave the school, unless checked out by a parent or guardian, during their school day. Once a student arrives on campus, they are required to stay on campus until their school day comes to a close.
As we look to enhance options for students, we will begin exploring ways that student dining needs can be addressed to expand variety and choice.
I thank you in advance for supporting this significant change in the front office where we strive to improve our service to you, our students, and guests to the campus.

It is a student produced, 240 page, all-color, book of memories, that sells out every year.
Yearbooks cost our school organization approximately $75 to publish. The more we sell, the cheaper they cost. Because we never know how many we will sell, the longer you wait to purchase one, the more we have to charge. It pays to purchase early.
