Raintree Drive Extension


Project Information

The Raintree Drive Extension will provide a direct connection between the State Route Loop  101 Freeway and Scottsdale Road. This extension will simplify the route from Hayden Road to Scottsdale Road and help to relieve some of the traffic congestion currently experienced on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard.


The Scottsdale Airpark is a major employment center within Scottsdale, and the network of roadways, circulation and access is critical to the businesses and industry of the Airpark. The City of Scottsdale has completed several studies to address some of the transportation and access issues currently hindering drivers. The Raintree Drive Extension project is one component of Scottsdale's Airpark Area Circulation Study which seeks to improve mobility in and around the Airpark.

Project Update

The next phase of the Raintree Extension project is from the Thunderbird Road alignment at 73rd Street to the recently completed Roundabout at 76th Place and Redfield Road. This segment is currently two lanes westbound and one lane eastbound, the project will add a second eastbound lane, completing the 4-lane major collector roadway.  Work will begin in late-May 2024.

Public Art will be installed in the newly completed Raintree Roundabout on May 30.

Project History

The City of Scottsdale has prepared a Design Concept Report for this segment of roadway which will included recommendations regarding number of travel lanes, raised medians, major intersections (roundabout, traffic signal or side street stop control), minor side street lane configurations, safety considerations, driveway access, landscape and streetscape concepts, public art, drainage improvements, and right of way needs.  

The Raintree Drive Extension was included in the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), funded by Proposition 400 regional transportation sales tax funds.
