Cadence at Gateway’s location in a prime part of the East Valley, with views of two mountain ranges and access to excellent schools, shopping and entertainment will soon be even sweeter. The Loop 202 freeway currently allows Cadence residents to travel northwest to Tempe or southwest to Chandler in less than 20 minutes, but soon the SR-24 will create even more conveniences. Cadence at Gateway residents benefit from expansion of Route 24 Mesa’s State Route 24 (SR-24), which is literally at the front entrance of Cadence, is scheduled to begin an extension project called the Gateway Freeway in November 2019! The new Gateway Freeway will dramatically improve our Queen Creek and San Tan Valley neighbors’ commute as well as creating tremendous economic opportunities next to Cadence. The result – more jobs, shops, dining, entertainment and education just minutes away for an even better quality of life. The SR-24 project will extend the highway southeast, approximately three miles from Mesa between Ellsworth and Ironwood Drive, to link southeast Maricopa County to the San Tan Valley area in Pinal County. The timeline for the project is two years and estimated cost is $145.28 million which includes design, completion of the right of way and construction of the new highway. The completion will coincide with many Cadence families moving in, making it even easier if they’re relocating from Queen Creek or San Tan Valley to be closer to jobs, family, shopping and entertainment found near Cadence. Mesa's Route 24 is undergoing an expansion and Cadence is right at the heart of it Interested in new homes in the Mesa Gateway Corridor or tips for living in the East Valley? Sign up at
