I-10/Jackrabbit Trail Traffic Interchange Study

I-10/Jackrabbit Trail Traffic Interchange Study


The Arizona Department of Transportation has initiated a study, in partnership with the  Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), the Maricopa Department of Transportation (MCDOT), the Flood Control District of Maricopa County (FCDMC) and the City of Buckeye to evaluate improvements at the I-10 and Jackrabbit Trail Interchange in Buckeye. The project limits extend from south of McDowell Road at the north end to north of Van Buren at the south end.

A Design Concept Report (DCR) was previously developed for the entire Jackrabbit Trail corridor by MCDOT which identified a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) as the preferred concept for the interchange. 

The current scoping (or study) phase will develop a DCR and environmental document that take into account current traffic counts and new surrounding development projects. The DCR will re-evaluate the Tight Diamond Interchange (TDI) and DDI alternatives to determine the best interchange design. The next phase will entail proceeding to final design of the preferred alternative.

Study Elements

  • Widening Jackrabbit Trail from McDowell Road to Van Buren Street to six lanes
  • Reconstructing a new traffic interchange 
  • Possibly relocating  the FCDMC channel from Roosevelt Street to McDowell Road
  • Other elements include a raised median, curb, gutter, sidewalks, storm drain, retention basins, and signals
