Arizona Builder’s Exchange
A project to make it easier for ever-increasing international commerce to move through Nogales will begin in 2019, two years ahead of schedule, under changes approved by the Arizona State Transportation Board.
A $25M appropriation aimed at accelerating this project made it possible for work to start earlier than originally planned. In addition, $40M in federal funds will go toward SR 189 improvements approved to begin in 2019.
The project will improve a 3.75-mile section of State Route 189 in Nogales and build a flyover ramp connecting SR 189 to northbound Interstate 19. It includes work between the Mariposa Port of Entry and Grand Avenue, including the interchange at I-19.
