The Arizona State Transportation Board awarded the San Luis Improvements Project on Friday, Sept. 12, 2014 at their meeting in Casa Grande. The project is began construction on Monday, October 6, 2014.
The project consists of four phases. The first phase of the project (currently underway) consists of work at the port of entry (POE) and storm pipe installation along Urtuzuastegui, B and C Streets as well as repaving and improving Archibald Street to accomodate southbound POE traffic.
This phase is estimated to take approximately three months to complete. During this phase, Friendship Park will be closed to the public for safety reasons.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
Please allow extra travel time to get to your destination and be on the look-out for construction personnel and equipment.
