We’ve been working to keep the public updated on the latest developments on a Loop 303 extension. We recently hosted an open house public hearing to gather comments on the draft environmental study on plans to extend Loop 303 south between Van Buren Street and the proposed State Route 30. This included sharing the video above.
Those who attended the event were able to review the study’s findings and learn about the preferred alternative for an alignment of Loop 303 south of Van Buren, formally known as Alternative 2C South. ADOT’s project team was on hand to answer questions.
Construction could begin as early as 2020, if the preferred alternative route is formally approved.
The Loop 303 Draft Environmental Assessment and Initial Design Concept Report are available online at azdot.gov/Loop303SouthOfVanBuren
. The comment period ends July 15, 2018. Comments can be mailed by July 15 to ADOT Community Relations, ATTN: Loop 303 Study, 1655 W. Jackson Street, MD 126F, Phoenix AZ 85007, or emailed to Loop303south@azdot.gov
