We want your help to improve the Grand/35th avenues intersection

If you’re a driver whose travels include the intersection of Grand and 35th avenues in west Phoenix, or just someone who takes an interest in future transportation improvements across the Valley, ADOT is looking for your comments about potential upgrades along those often busy roadways.

Yes, that’s the intersection where Indian School Road also travels above on an overpass. The BNSF Railway tracks also parallels Grand Avenue (US 60) as part of an important commerce system that at times also impacts the movement of vehicle traffic.

It adds up to ADOT’s ongoing “Grand-35 Study” to determine what changes, if any, should be made at the intersection.

You can find out more by visiting That also will provide you with a survey that includes an opportunity to give the study team valuable input as they work to complete the study over the next year or so.

What do you think? Should one of the roadways at Grand and 35th avenues be raised or lowered to help reduce congestion and enhance safety at the intersection? Would you support lowering or raising the railroad tracks? What about improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists?

The Grand-35 Study is scheduled to be finished in early 2022. If the study determines an alternative to build improvements at the intersection, design is expected to begin in 2022 with construction anticipated to begin in 2024. A planned project would be funded in part by Proposition 400, a dedicated sales tax approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004.

Comments can be submitted through Friday, Nov. 6. In addition to the link above, your thoughts for the Grand-35 study team also can be sent via email to [email protected], by calling 602.474.3952 or by mail to ADOT Grand-35 Study, HDR Inc., 20 E. Thomas Rd., Suite 2500, Phoenix, AZ 85012.
