John Wayne Parkway (SR 347) Improvements — Smith-Enke Road (SR 238) to Maricopa city limits
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), in cooperation with the city of Maricopa, is planning a project to widen northbound John Wayne Parkway (SR 347) for approximately 1.3 miles from Smith-Enke Road (SR 238) to just north of the city limits. This project will help relieve traffic congestion and improve travel times by widening northbound SR 347 and improving the Lakeview Drive intersection.
Key elements of the project include:
This project is a partnership between ADOT and the city of Maricopa, with each contributing roughly half of the construction funding. Once completed, this segment of John Wayne Parkway will be turned over to the city for long-term operations and maintenance.
Construction is anticipated to begin in fall 2023 and is expected to be complete in summer 2024.

Transportation Plan - Technical Memorandum #1
Tonight the Study/Planning team had an open house at Library and Cultural Center to hear about The Transportation Plan's Technical Memorandum #1.
This part of the study provides documentation on the recent survey conducted over a three-week period that received 431 responses from area residents. The survey collected respondent's thoughts on items that impede travel within the study area. Troublesome roads and intersections were also identified. The study team also identified levels of service on these roads from actual 2021 records. Levels of service is a metric used by transportation professionals to qualitatively describe the operating conditions of a roadway. They also performed a crash analysis on the same data developing a view of the dangerous intersections and road segments of the current roads. They documented the existence of bike lanes, multi-use paths and bus transportation in both the City and County segments of the study area. As the study moves forward the data collected will be used in modeling exercises to develop future projects based on different levels of forecast growth.
Western Pinal County, which includes the City of Maricopa, has been a past, current, and future focus of growth and urbanization. As a result, Pinal County and the City of Maricopa have recently initiated a collaborative effort to study the area and create a plan that updates the City’s current Area Transportation Plan (2015) to ensure the current and proposed transportation systems are aligned with the existing needs and anticipated growth and development – this effort is formally known as the West Pinal County - City of Maricopa Area Transportation Plan (WPMATP).
The primary objectives are to define the current circulation system, evaluate its performance, forecast future needs, and prepare a plan for fulfilling the identified multimodal transportation needs.
