Agua Fria Trail construction begins May 11 in Avondale 

Starting May 11, construction of the Agua Fria Trail will begin in Avondale. This partially federally-funded project has a total construction cost of $2.1 Million (Federal $1.8 million; City $300K). The project will be managed by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), and is part of a regional multimodal trail system.  The proposed completion for this project is December 2020. 

The Agua Fria Trail is located approximately a half mile north of Van Buren Street along the Agua Fria River east levee, beneath the I-10 overpass. The work consists of constructing asphaltic concrete and a cement concrete pathway, soil cement bank protection, landscaping and other related work.

Access to businesses and residential properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the project, and there will be no impact to travel lanes as most of the work will be in the Agua Fria River levee.

For more information about this project, contact the city of Avondale Development and Engineering Services Department 623-333-4218; .
