There are four active design projects in the DOT-57 Safety Improvement program. They are: Mary Ann Cleveland Way at Kush Canyon HAWK, South Camino de La Tierra (Highway Drive) & Curtis Rd, Ina Rd Sidewalks- Shannon Rd to La Cholla Blvd., and Speedway Blvd: Painted Hills to Camino de Oeste. The Mary Ann Cleveland HAWK project is estimated to start construction this fall. The others are in the early design stages and construction starts are not expected until 2018. Two programmatic projects, Intelligent Transportation Systems and Square Tube Breakaway Posts, continue to spend bond funds annually.
Four DOT-57 Safety Improvement program HAWK projects are currently under construction. They are located at Tanque Verde Road at Emily Gray JHS, Bowes Road at Sabino High School, Palo Verde Road at both Alvord & Milton, and Flowing Wells Road at Wabash Street. Also, under construction is the DOT-57 Harrison Road Bike Lane project.

These improvements make up the southernmost portion of the DOT-50 Kinney Road, Ajo Way to Bopp Road project.
