In the 96-page spring issue of Arizona Contractor & Community magazine, we focus on two “Papago” places vital to Phoenix. We trace how the Papago Freeway evolved from a sky highway to an underground transportation link. For a little fun, we also spotlight Papago Park, focusing on the creation, construction, and crazy happenings at the Phoenix Zoo, National Guard Armory, Golf Course, and Desert Botanical Garden. Enjoy!
Copies are available via the ACC website or at Books on 7th Avenue in Phoenix, or the Ignite Sign Museum in Tucson.
Arizona Contractor & Community magazine has become a vital forum for the state’s building industry by providing critical information and exposure to companies in the field. Moreover, the publication has expanded beyond traditional construction, architecture, and real estate topics and has found an audience with those who have fresh ideas on adaptive reuse of historic buildings or making new developments more community-friendly and sustainable.
The magazine also looks frequently in the rearview mirror with articles that honor the many remarkable accomplishments of the building industry in Arizona. It may have been “just a job” back in the day, but these construction pioneers created the spectacular framework that still holds Arizona together. Anyone with an interest in history or engineering will enjoy the incredible legacy of roads, buildings, dams, and other infrastructure projects featured in the magazine.
