Public Outreach - Willcox Circulation Study

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the city of Willcox are evaluating the public's feedback on proposed preferred alternatives to reduce the impact of freight traffic while improving safety in downtown Willcox.

A second community survey, which ran through Tuesday, Nov. 30, will help determine whether or not to move forward with project implementation.

The preferred alternatives under consideration are:

The preferred alternatives are:

  1. An interim, short-term project would modify Haskell Avenue (Business Route 10)  at the intersection with Maley Street (State Route 186) to remove the center left-turn lanes to provide more space for trucks to turn and convert the intersection to a four-way stop. Left turns would instead be made from a shared left-turn/through/right-turn lane.
  2. A longer-term ultimate solution consists of a new bypass roadway east of downtown Willcox that would connect from Maley Street (SR 186) at 2nd Avenue to Haskell Avenue (B-10) at Rex Allen Drive (SR 186), including a new at-grade railroad crossing.

Funding for the preferred alternative improvements has not yet been identified.
