The Arizona Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, Yuma County and city of San Luis have recently completed an extensive improvement project in the downtown San Luis area to improve the circulation of vehicular traffic, enhance bicyclist and pedestrian safety, and improve access to downtown businesses.
