Last chance to provide comments on I-10 Broadway Curve study

March 25, 2019

PHOENIX – Members of the public have until Monday, April 1, to share comments, suggestions and recommendations about potential improvements to Interstate 10 between the Interstate 17 “Split” interchange in Phoenix and Loop 202 Santan Freeway in Chandler, one of the most heavily traveled areas in the Valley. 

About 200 people attended a Feb. 26 Arizona Department of Transportation public information and scoping meeting in Tempe to hear a presentation about the potential improvements and submit comments. All meeting materials presented at the meeting are available on the study homepage at i10broadwaycurve.com under “Public Meetings Documents.”

There are still plenty of ways to provide feedback, including: 

         Online: i10broadwaycurve.com

         Email: [email protected]

         Bilingual Hotline: 602.501.5505

         Mail: ADOT Communications, 1655 W. Jackson St., MD 126F, Phoenix AZ 85007

In partnership with the Federal Highway Administration and Maricopa Association of Governments, the regional planning agency, ADOT is conducting an Environmental Assessment in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 to study 11 miles of I-10 between 24th Street and Ray Road, a stretch that includes the Broadway Curve, which handles more than 40 percent of freeway traffic in the region and sees heavy congestion.

Potential improvements identified through previous studies, including the I-10/I-17 “Spine” Corridor Master Plan, include: an additional general purpose lane and/or additional HOV lane; a collector-distributor road system offering local traffic lanes; and reconstructing the I-10/State Route 143/Broadway Road connections and the I-10/US 60 connection.

Funding for the potential project is allocated through the Maricopa Association of Governments’ Regional Transportation Plan approved by county voters in 2004.

Construction could begin in 2021, if approved.

Comments must be received by April 1 to be included in the official study record.
