Avenida del Yaqui Improvement Project

Last October 2022, the Arizona Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration, Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) and the town of Guadalupe, broke ground on street and sidewalk improvements along Avenida del Yaqui, the main artery in historic Guadalupe. One year later, the project team has finished its work. 

About the Project

Construction crews resurfaced the pavement and installed new curb, gutter, sidewalks, driveways and striping between Calle Carmen and the Highline Canal. New traffic signs, enhanced pedestrian crossings and a designated bicycle lane also were part of the project.

The majority of the $6.1 million project was funded through federal transportation dollars, with the town of Guadalupe and MAG providing additional funds.
