The sign for Milepost 35 was there as of June 2018, when this Google Street View photo was taken.  I'm not sure if ADOT maintains only the bridge or the entire road between the bridge and AZ 77.  In any case, it is not signed as AZ 989 anywhere.

As of today (5/24/21) there's a mile marker 35 in both directions.

A key tell with AZ 989 is that the traffic signal at Innovation Park Dr. is an ADOT standard signal as opposed to the white painted Oro Valley signals.

Compare the signal at 1st Ave (Oro Valley) with the ones at Innovation Park Dr. and Oracle Rd. (ADOT).

Another indication is that when Oro Valley recently resealed their part of Tangerine, they stopped just west of La Canada Dr. Mile marker 34 is just east of La Canada, so that matches up pretty well. It's interesting that there's an OV signal at Rancho Vistoso/First and Tangerine because the road is ADOT-owned.

As of last week, Ruthrauff Rd is open to traffic over I-10. The ramp connections are still closed till later this year.
