The city of Glendale opened a new one-mile stretch of road near the Westgate Entertainment District.
Officials gathered Nov. 19 for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of a Cardinals Way extension between 83rd and 91st avenues. This one-mile stretch along the Bethany Home alignment completes another east-west arterial connecting downtown Glendale and central Phoenix with the Sports and Entertainment District and Loop 101.
This will ease access to the area around Westgate and State Farm Stadium, 1 Cardinals Drive, especially on game days and during mega-events.
It will also reduce congestion along Glendale Avenue and Camelback Road, while serving as a gateway to the new StoneHaven master-planned community and the Crystal Lagoons Island Resort mixed-use development.
Pulte Homes and other developers in the area contributed half of the $6 million to build the road.
