  • Cortaro Farms Road - Camino De Oeste/Thornydale

    Camino de Oeste - Valencia Road to Los Reales Road

    Project Cost: 13,600,000
    Project Status: Completed
    Completion Date: Spring 2019
    Engineer/Contractor: Psomas/Hunter Contracting Co.

    The proposed improvements consist of widening the existing roadway from 2 to 4 lanes multi-use lanes, curbed median, storm drain system, cross drainage structures, retaining walls, public art, rubberized asphalt, traffic signal, native re-vegetation landscaping and signage and pavement markings.

    The overall schedule for Cortaro is based on the availability of funding to complete this last remaining segment in the Cortaro/Magee corridor. Delaying the project until after the Ina Road/Interstate 10 interchange project has been completed, will likely result in loss of funding for the project. in addition, the department has been experiencing a strong bidding market with a number of exceptional contractors submitting bids.  Maintaining the current schedule will allow us to take advantage of this continued opportunity.

    Although the construction time frame for Cortaro will overlap with the planned closure and improvement at the Ina Road interchange (see Link below for more information on the Ina Project), PCDOT will maintain one lane in each direction throughout the construction duration, and access will be maintained at all times to side streets,  business, schools and residents. In addition, PCDOT has recently completed several other projects in the region along La Canada, La Cholla, Magee and Orange Grove that will allow motorists to utilize alternate routes and corridors.
