Active projects may be a study, plan, design or construction. These projects are approved in either the Work Program & Budget or in the TIP. Projects are programed by the State Fiscal Year (from July 1st to June 30th of the next calendar year). This webpage will provide links to project reports describing the project, estimated timeline to complete, funding sources and project documents.
Theater Drive Corridor Study
In a joint partnership with the City of Sierra Vista and Cochise County, a Inventory and Roadway feasibility Assessment is being completed for the Theater Drive Corridor and Area. The area to be considered is from School Drive south to Railroad drive; from 7th Street west to Carmichael Ave. This Study will inventory existing travel conditions, including how people walk, ride bicycles and catch the bus within this area, what impacts utilities have on the available project alternatives, take a look at parking for delivery trucks as well as the serious flooding on the roadway and adjacent properties during heavy storm events. This inventory will lead to a Joint Agency development of potential projects within the area to improve travel options and transportation circulation.

Moson Road Pre-Scoping Study
In a joint partnership with Cochise County, a Cross-Section Pre-Scoping Study is being undertaken on Moson Rd. The corridor to be studied is from Highway 92 to Hereford Road. The Study will look at how well traffic can move on this two-lane rural roadway both now and in the future. The study team will also consider the need for different modes of travel, like bicycles and equestrian riders, the turning movements of larger trucks and school buses at intersections as well as needs for drainage improvements. This pre-scoping effort is intended to develop phased improvements for this corridor and develop preliminary cost estimates to design and construct safety, drainage and traffic movement improvements. A design phase has been funded and programmed to begin in the year 2023. Construction funding has not yet been identified. A consultant team, Michael-Baker International, has been selected to assist with this Study. It is expected to be completed by early 2023.
Emergency Pre-Emption Signal
In partnership with ADOT’s SouthCentral District, the Town of Huachuca City and the Whetstone Fire Dept., emergency pre-emption signals will be installed on Highway 90 to alert, slow and stop high-speed traffic on Highway 90 to allow faster response times for emergency services. This project will include advance signs, alerting the traveling public to the presence of two fire stations, and combine existing street lighting with the new mast arms. Signal activation and Whetstone emergency beacons were completed in December 2020. Final inspections are planned for early 2021 and this project will be completed by March of 2021.
Adaptive Signal Control
The City of Sierra Vista was awarded Highway Safety Improvement Program funds to enhance traffic signal responsiveness to changing traffic conditions. This high-tech software, installed on traffic signals throughout the City, will provide real-time signal alerts of traffic signal failures and improve service response times. This software installation project will be underway by summer of 2019 and completed by the end of 2021.
North Garden/Fry Blvd. Phase I
A conceptual design study was completed for the West End area in 2017. Business owners along this historic entryway to Fort Huachuca and the City of Sierra Vista were looking for a distinctive look that encouraged a pedestrian friendly environment. At the same time, potential improvements in efficiency, reliability and safety for key downtown intersections and corridors were identified. This project is the first phase of construction towards enhancing the West End transportation circulation. Construction is planned in the year 2021.
