PHOENIX – As the Arizona Department of Transportation evaluates potential improvements to Interstate 10 between the Interstate 17 “Split” interchange in Phoenix and the Loop 202 Santan Freeway in Chandler, a meeting Tuesday, Feb. 26, will allow the public to get information and provide feedback.

In partnership with the Federal Highway Administration and Maricopa Association of Governments, the regional planning agency, ADOT is studying and designing preliminary concepts for 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 include: an additional general purpose lane and/or additional HOV lane; a collector-distributor system offering local traffic lanes; reconstructing the I-10/State Route 143/Broadway Road connections and the I-10/US 60 connection; and other related work.

The public can provide input on the I-10 Broadway Curve Study at this open house meeting:

When: 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26 (presentation at 6 p.m.)

Where: Rio Salado College Conference Center, 2323 W. 14th St., Tempe, AZ 85281

Who: Representatives from ADOT’s I-10 Broadway Curve Study Team will be available to hear comments and answer questions.

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.

For those unable to attend, there are still plenty of ways to provide feedback, including: 

Comments must be received by April 1 to be considered part of the scoping process for the I-10 Broadway Curve Study.
