The new soil cement bank protection and grade control structure protects the newly constructed Sahuarita Road bridges, providing a critical “all-weather” crossing of the Santa Cruz River between I-19 and State Route 83.
In addition, the incorporated multi-use trail accommodates the future development of the Juan Bautista De Anza Historical Trail, a county-wide bike/pedestrian path along the Santa Cruz River.
