The Southern Avenue Streetscape Improvements project is the first project from the City of Mesa’s Fiesta District Implementation Plan along Southern Avenue. The improvements will create a uniquely identifiable area for Mesa that is economically vibrant, pedestrian friendly and an active urban destination.  The project is scheduled to begin in April 2013 and is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2014.  This project will transition Southern Avenue to four through lanes (two in each direction) from east of Dobson Road to Alma School Road.  Other improvements include wider sidewalks and landscaping behind the new curbs.  New amenities will be installed, which include benches, street lighting, pedestrian lighting, trash cans, bike racks and traffic signals.  Colored paving enhancements will be constructed at the intersections of Southern and Alma School, Southern and Stewart and Southern and Longmore.  Vibrant monument entry signs will be constructed at the intersections of Alma School Road and Southern Avenue and on Southern Avenue west of Sycamore.

The public is invited to attend a Pre-Construction Public Meeting where City staff and Haydon Building Corp. will be available to answer your questions regarding project improvements.  No formal presentation will be given at this meeting, but you will be able to review plans.
