Olive Avenue Corridor

Program Overview

Olive Avenue is a significant thoroughfare for residents and travelers in the western part of Maricopa County. With its prominent roadway connections to SR Loop 303 and SR Loop 101, traffic projects for Olive Avenue in the west valley are expected to increase over the next 20 years. MCDOT is moving forward with several projects along Olive Avenue in this area to increase capacity, improve safety and make roadway operations more efficient.
