These phases also included landscaped medians, bike lanes, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and extensive work on water, reclaimed water, and sewer pipe lines.

- Widening Gilbert Road to four lanes (two lanes in each direction) from just south of Chandler Heights Road to Hunt Highway.
- Landscaped medians, bike lanes, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and any utility relocations necessary for the improvements.
- Dedicated right turn lanes, bike lanes and Americans with Disabilities Act improvements, such as installation of handicap ramps at corners, in the project area.

Access to homes and businesses will be maintained throughout construction.
