The Town of Thatcher is preparing improvement plans for a 1-mile section of Church Street from the US 70 to Stadium Avenue. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Safford District is administering the project. The widening of Church Street, between US 70 and Stadium Avenue, is intended to provide for the future traffic and access needs and to alleviate surface ponding of storm water following rain events. The improvements will include widening the pavement, providing curb and gutter for the length of the improvement, and providing space for parking and non-vehicular uses. The improvements are intended to improve the operation and safety of the roadway.
