The public meeting for the Milton Road Corridor Master Plan will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Residents can join the meeting by visiting azdot.gov/MiltonCorridorMasterPlan

The public meeting for the US 180 Corridor Master Plan will be held on Thursday, Nov. 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Residents can join the meeting by visiting azdot.gov/US180CorridorMasterPlan

The public is encouraged to use the above websites to submit comments via an online survey. All comments on these studies will need to be received by Dec. 4. Questions and comments may also be submitted by emailing [email protected] and [email protected]. Members of the public can also submit comments by phone by calling 602-522-7777.

The purpose of the corridor master plans, which are being developed concurrently with one another, is to create a 20-year vision for the two busy transportation corridors that address current and future safety, traffic congestion and transit issues by evaluating previously recommended and newly introduced alternatives. This includes a mix of alternatives that use and maintain the existing roadways as well as alternatives that would require widening the roadways.

Milton Road, also known as SR 89A, is the primary corridor coming into Flagstaff. US 180, locally known as Humphreys Street and Fort Valley Road, is the primary corridor to Arizona Snowbowl and other snow play areas. The highway is also an alternate route to SR 64 and the Grand Canyon.
