  • Right-of-Way Treated: North Hayden (From Jomax to Remuda), Remuda Drive (From Hayden to entry into community of Rawhide Estates), Eastside of Pima Road (From Legends Trail Parkway to Stagecoach Pass Road), Stagecoach Pass Road (From Pima to WAPA powerline service road east of the dead-end), Northside of Happy Valley Road (From 74th Place to Scottsdale Road), Eastside of Scottsdale Road (From Happy Valley to Jomax).
Current and upcoming projects include:
