Roadway of the Future: Pinal County East-West Corridor Study Begins

11/16/2011

Public Input Important to Process, 2 Meetings to Attend
 
FLORENCE, AZ – Pinal County, in cooperation and coordination with the City of Casa Grande and City of Maricopa, is initiating a study to examine new transportation routes that provide connectivity through western Pinal County.  Transportation goals include new high-capacity roadways that can handle the projected east-west travel demand within the area.
 
A parkway with restricted access is one concept being examined as part of the study.  The study will investigate corridor options within Pinal County that could pass through portions of the City of Maricopa and the City of Casa Grande. 
 
A large study area has been identified and public input is essential as the County and Cities develop concepts to address the projected travel demand.  The corridor may also pass through private property, land under the jurisdiction of the Arizona State Land Department, Bureau of Land Management, the Ak-Chin Indian Community, or other jurisdictions.
 
The county and cities are encouraging members of the public to participate in the study by attending one of the scheduled meetings in Maricopa or Casa Grande.  The meetings will provide an overview of the study, present the environmental and engineering processes and schedule, allow attendees to ask questions and, most importantly, provide the opportunity for valuable public input on the study. 
 
Representatives from the county, city personnel, and study team members will be on hand to answer questions.  The comments received from these meetings will be used to help identify critical issues to be addressed in the Environmental Assessment.
