US-60 Superstition
Project Card
Gilbert Rd to Power Rd - Addition of new eastbound and westbound lanes TRAC # H664901
RTP Phase 1 Project Description The project widened US-60 (Superstition Freeway) between Gilbert and Power roads in the East Valley. The nearly six-mile long project added both general purpose and HOV lanes to east and westbound US-60, along with improved lighting, drainage and other improvements.
Project Benefits This area of US-60 is heavily travelled and traffic volume and drive time were directly benefitted as a result of the widening project. HOV lanes improve traffic flow, encourage carpooling and expand the regional transit network. Vehicles carrying two or more occupants, Valley Metro buses, certified alternative-fuel vehicles, motorcycles and emergency vehicles can use HOV lanes from 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. All vehicles can use HOV lanes at all other times.
