Project Card
SR 74 Carefree TRAC # H706001
RTP Phase 1 Project Description The project removed and then reconstructed a new traffic interchange at Interstate 17 and State Route 74 Carefree Highway. The new traffic interchange is a full-diamond interchange with the addition of two loop ramps. Also included were auxiliary lanes on Interstate 17, lighting upgrades, improved drainage and rubberized asphalt.
Project Benefits The loop ramps allow for seamless merging for the heavily traveled directions of northbound Interstate 17 to westbound SR 74 and westbound SR 74 to southbound Interstate 17. Because it was paved with rubberized asphalt, traffic noise was reduced and drivers have a smoother ride.
