[AZ 79]

Current route: JCT AZ 77 at Oracle Jct. to JCT US 60 at Florence Jct.
Historical route: Part of US 89

This number was recycled for the southern leg of US 89 that was decertified, but wasn't multiplexed.

[Business AZ 79]
AZ 79 has one business loop, in Florence. It's the only Arizona state route with a signed business loop. Others may have "Business District" signs, but they don't have actual BUSINESS markers.

[Pinal Pioneer Parkway]
The southern leg is the Pinal Pioneer Parkway. If it looks like something is missing from this sign, you're right.
