I-11 and Intermountain West Corridor Study

The study includes detailed corridor planning of a possible high-priority interstate link between Phoenix and Las Vegas, and high-level visioning for potentially extending the corridor north to Canada and south to Mexico.

Sonoran Corridor Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement 

In February 2017, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and ADOT initiated the environmental review process for the Sonoran Corridor, a potential new transportation corridor route that would connect Interstate 19 to Interstate 10 south of the Tucson International Airport.  A Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is being prepared as part of this process in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and other regulatory requirements. Public scoping is scheduled to begin in June 2017.

State Route 189 Study: International Border to Grand Avenue

ADOT and the Federal Highway Administration began working on an engineering and environmental study for SR 189 (Mariposa Road) in 2011. The goal of the study is to develop a long-range plan for future improvements between the U.S.-Mexico border and Grand Avenue. The Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) was available for a 30-day public review and comment period from Jan. 13 - Feb. 14, 2017. A public hearing to provide input on the Draft EA was held Jan. 31. 2017. The final Environmental Assessment is scheduled to be published in summer 2017.

North South Corridor Study

A highway study in Pinal County that would improve regional connectivity, provide an additional way of getting around a growing area of the Sun Corridor, and address current and future transportation needs in a growing area is moving forward under a new environmental review process. The project scope also incorporates the extension of State Route 24 from Ironwood Drive to the North South Corridor.
