Overview

The Arizona Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration and the Maricopa Association of Governments, is improving Interstate 10 between Interstate 17 and Loop 202 (Santan/South Mountain Freeway), including the Broadway Curve.

This 11-mile stretch of roadway is a key commerce corridor and has seen increasing levels of traffic over the past few years, especially during the weekday morning and evening peak hours.

Major design improvements include:

  • Widening I-10 to six general purpose lanes and two HOV lanes in each direction between US 60 and 24th Street, and adding a fourth general purpose lane in each direction between US 60 and Ray Road
  • Adding a collector-distributor road system between Baseline Road and SR 143. Motorists entering and exiting I-10 in this area will use the C-D lanes as a transition between the main freeway lanes and surface streets. Only drivers traveling the entire distance between Baseline Road and SR 143 or beyond will use the I-10 mainline. This eliminates the need for drivers to make lane changes to exit I-10, which increases safety and traffic flow.
  • Modifying connections between I-10 and State Route 143 and Broadway Road to improve traffic flow and create HOV lane connections, including construction of new bridges and SR 143 improvements between I-10 and University Drive
  • Modifying the interchange of I-10 and US 60, including improvements to US 60 between I-10 and Priest Road
  • Constructing three pedestrian bridges
  • Building sound and retaining walls

ADOT has completed the Environmental Assessment (EA) for improvements to Interstate 10 (I-10) between the I-17 Split and the Loop 202 Santan/South Mountain Freeway with a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The EA was guided by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations, and federal and state environmental process requirements. With this environmental clearance, ADOT can move forward with the project development, design and construction process. Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2021 and may last until fall 2024.
