The Ghostbuster:
Maybe if the parkway is completed as proposed, they can bring back the AZ 50 designation.

That would be Robert Rd, and I believe I saw an estimated build year for a grade-separated crossing around 2021.

Been awhile since we’ve talked about Northern Parkway.  Wrote up something since I flew over the corridor last week:

I don't make it out there often or really have it on my radar as far as road projects go, so it's surprising to see how much Maricopa County has chipped away at it. There's a ton of warehouses going up in the area which are/will be well served by it.

From Agua Fria River and Loop 101 is going to be a doozy. Wonder if they'll doze a few dozen homes or try to squeeze it in. At current real estate prices I could see it going either way.

between 101 and Grand it is so densely developed that I would be very surprised to see any sort of parkway/freeway-ization in my lifetime.

I think the next phase over to near the 101 is going to be standard "parkway" with limited or no left turns. So no grade separations or ramps that need more RoW. Just a fairly free-flowing surface street.

Looking at Google Maps, only place that looks like they might need to take any homes is right at 108th Ave. Maybe one or two homes. Everywhere else seems to have buffer to either the north or south side.
