Centennial Way Groundbreaking Wrap Up Print

The project team from Achen-Gardner Construction, state and local officials, and members of the public attended the Centennial Way Groundbreaking Ceremony today in front of Carnegie Library in downtown Phoenix.

Arizona-Centennial-logoSome of those in attendance were Jan Brewer (Governor/State of Arizona), Ken Bennett (Arizona Secretary of State), Michael Johnson (District 8 Councilman/City of Phoenix), Bryan Jeffries (District 2 Councilman/City of Phoenix), Charles Jones (Co-Chair/Arizona Centennial Commission), Karen Churchard (Executive Director/Arizona Centennial Commission), and Wylie Bearup (Street Transportation Director/City of Phoenix).

Centennial Way is a street enhancement project which will transform Washington Street (from 7th to 15th Avenues) into a beautiful gateway to the Arizona State Capitol.

“When Centennial Way is completed, it will be the result of several visionary stakeholders coming together to create a streetscape of which Arizonans can be proud,” said Governor Jan Brewer, who led groundbreaking festivities. “It will be a noteworthy thoroughfare leading to our state’s capitol and to downtown Phoenix as well, and incorporate elements of our state’s culture and diversity from every corner of Arizona. It will be a fitting tribute to our 15 counties and our 22 Native American tribes. The result, I believe, will be an improvement that is fitting as we approach Arizona’s 100 years of statehood.”
