I-10 Multimodal Corridor Profile Study
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is conducting a long-rang planning study for Interstate 10 called the I-10 Multimodal Corridor Profile Study. The study area, referred to as the I-10 Corridor, extends from downtown Phoenix (Central Avenue) to the Arizona/California border. The intent of the study is to take a comprehensive look at the transportation needs for the I-10 Corridor and consider a range of mobility options, including personal and commercial vehicles, rail and public transit, and air service.
The study area is defined as up to one mile on either side of I-10, with consideration of greater distance for key roads, populations, and multimodal opportunities. The study area is located within La Paz and Maricopa counties.
Interstate 10 and Interstate 40 are the only Interstate highways that cross the entire state of Arizona. As a continuous coast-to-coast route, I-10 is a principal freight route connecting the southern California ports with the Phoenix metropolitan area and major metropolitan areas in Texas and Florida.
Within La Paz County, the study will also:
Within Maricopa County, there are two adopted studies that serve as the primary guide for the I-10 Corridor: the Regional Transportation Plan and Interstate 10 - Hassayampa Valley Roadway Framework Study. The I-10 Corridor Study will focus on compiling the recommendations from these studies and others into a single resource focused on the I-10 Corridor. New alternatives and improvements will not be recommended within Maricopa County.
The I-10 Corridor study began in the summer 2011 and is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2012. The study includes the following phases:
Given the length of the corridor, a wide variety of interests will be affected making public participation in the study process essential.
A public meeting will be held to inform, discuss, and gather comments about the recommended improvement projects for the I-10 Corridor in La Paz County. The public meeting is anticipated to be held in fall 2012 in La Paz County (location to be determined.)
E-newsletters will also be a valuable resource for updates and information on the progress of the study. Information will be distributed at key milestones during the study and will be e-mailed to those who have signed up to be on the email distribution list:
In addition, the study team will be meeting with elected officials, agency representatives, and stakeholders to gather important information about the study area and receive input about the proposed improvement projects.
