ADOT seeks input from public on corridor master plan studies for US 180, Milton Road

Plans will identify 20-year vision for Flagstaff corridors

PHOENIX – As the Arizona Department of Transportation studies and develops long-term visions for two major Flagstaff corridors, the agency will hold public meetings on the first two Thursdays in May to solicit input.

The public meeting on the US 180 Corridor Master Plan will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 3, at the Flagstaff High School Commons, 400 W. Elm Ave. ADOT will also host a public meeting for the Milton Road Corridor Master Plan from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 10, at the same location.

Both meetings will begin with a brief presentation, followed by an open house during which the public can talk with ADOT representatives.

Each corridor master plan will set a 20-year vision for US 180 and Milton Road with suggested projects aimed at improving traffic flow and maintaining safety.

US 180, the primary route between Flagstaff and Arizona Snowbowl and other snow-play areas, has seen heavy traffic during winter weekends. The study area for US 180 runs from the intersection of Humphreys Street and Route 66 to the Crowley Pit at milepost 233.

Milton Road, also known as State Route 89A, is the primary roadway through the heart of Flagstaff. It sees traffic delays during weekday rush hours and experiences backups during winter weekends.

The study area for Milton Road runs from Forest Meadows Street near the southern entrance to Flagstaff to the point where Milton turns into Route 66 at Butler Avenue and goes to Beaver Street.
