Project Improvements

  • Widen northbound SR 347 to the inside to add a third lane from Smith Enke Road to just north of the city limits.
  • Add a second left turn lane on southbound SR 347 to eastbound Lakeview Drive.
  • Reconstruct westbound Lakeview Drive at SR 347 to add a dedicated left turn lane and a new right turn lane with an acceleration/merge lane on SR 347.
  • Install a raised island at the northeast corner of the intersection of Lakeview Dr and SR 347 to provide a pedestrian crossing refuge area.
  • Remove and replace existing pavement through the intersection of SR 347 and Lakeview/Cobblestone Farms Dr.
  • Install curb and gutter on northbound SR 347 and improve drainage infrastructure.

This project is a partnership between ADOT and the city of Maricopa, with each contributing roughly half of the construction funding. Once completed, this segment of John Wayne Parkway will be turned over to the city for long-term operations and maintenance.
