Tuesday morning, the City of Maricopa officially opened a new loop connecting Edison Road to State Route 238.

Mayor Christian Price called it “a pretty monumental day.”

The extension was built to provide access to the Estrella Gin area that is intended to be a business park. Maricopa bought the property in 2011 for $3.2 million. Converting it to industry has not been an easy process.

Elijah Williams, president of engineer firm EPS, which also

designed the coming overpass, recalled sitting down with then-Economic Development Director Micah Miranda to discuss all the challenges connected to the property. That included dealing with the Arizona Department of Transportation, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and Arizona Corporation Commission for permitting, traffic studies, environmental studies, cultural resource studies and water.
