AZ 50 Shield

AZ 50

State Route 50 was going to be the Paradise Parkway. It would've ran mostly along Bethany Home Road from Glendale to Phoenix and potentially even to Scottsdale. The project was canceled however due to neighborhood opposition. The proposed plan was extremely expensive and unpopular. Originally, the route was designated SR 317.

Length: 13.8 miles
Proposed: 1968-1980s?
Historical Proposed Route: Loop 101 in Phoenix to AZ 51 in Phoenix
Major Junctions: Loop 101, US 60, I-17, AZ 51
