About the Project

The project includes resurfacing the pavement and installing new curb, gutter, sidewalks, driveways and striping, including a new designated bicycle lane. Additional improvements include new traffic signs, enhanced pedestrian crossings and additional pedestrian amenities.

The majority of the $6.1 million project is funded through federal transportation dollars, with some funding provided by the town of Guadalupe and the Maricopa Association of Governments. Construction began in fall 2021 and is expected to take approximately one year to complete.

What to Expect During Construction

The project will involve removing and then rebuilding the existing sidewalk, curb, gutter and driveways, as well as rebuilding the roadway between Calle Carmen and the Highline Canal. Construction will begin at Calle Carmen and move north on the west side of Avenida del Yaqui and then continue from north to south on the east side of the roadway.
