ADOT Thank You Letter Address - Our community will have a safer entrance for many years to come due to the completion of the McGuireville Interchange Ramp Improvement Project which widened and lengthened all of the entrance and exit ramps.  This was a very challenging engineering, design, and construction project.  We hope that residents and users of the interchange will take the time to send a few words of appreciation to the ADOT staff, State Transportation Board, and Project Contractors and Crew at www.azdot.gov.  Please click on the Contact ADOT button in the upper right-hand corner of the home page.  www.azdot.gov/index.asp

A community transportation system will need to accommodate smart growth, quality of life issues, environmental and safety issues and the preservation of the area’s rural character. As the area’s population and densities increase in accordance to its platted subdivisions and proliferation of lot splits, the need to prepare for future transportation needs becomes critical.  Alternate and emergency access for the safety of residents of the planning area is of greatest priority, followed by recreational access to trails and public lands.

 

Roadways in the Beaver Creek area are a combination paved and unpaved County maintained, Forest Service roads and private roadways which are occasionally maintained.   Overall transportation system for the Beaver Creek area is impacted by an ad hoc network of roadways and easements, the course of Wet and Dry Beaver Creek, the area’s historical significance and a rugged rural terrain.
