Western Avenue gets $475,000 makeover
GOODYEAR, AZ – A $475,000 grant is about to change the face of Western Avenue.
Work will begin in early 2009 on new sidewalks, lighting, accessible curb ramps, landscaping, curbs and gutters on Western Avenue between Litchfield Road and the City of Avondale, thanks to a recently approved $475,334 Community Development Block Grant.
The Litchfield Corridor Redevelopment Task Force set the vision for this historic area. As the community grew, so did the traffic. Nearly 25,000 drivers pass through this area every day. With more than 480 residents, a police station, two neighborhood parks, a community center and the City pool, these improvements will help make the entire neighborhood a safer, more vibrant place.
