The Arizona Daily Star editorialized about these improvements to Interstate 10, "Our favorite Tucson touch is the tile murals with images of residents from two West Side barrios at the St. Mary's Road underpass. The artwork was designed by artist and state Rep. Steve Farley, D-Tucson, who created similar murals at the Broadway underpass in 1999. The artwork not only depicts the personality of our community, but visually bridges the west and east sides of downtown."
