Next week the Arizona Department of Transportation, in a partnership with the Federal Highway Administration, is hosting a series of public meetings in Pinal County on the North-South Corridor Study. 

The North-South Corridor is a proposed 45-mile transportation corridor that would link US 60 near Apache Junction, south to Interstate 10 near Eloy. The meetings will provide information about the recently completed Alternatives Selection Report, as part of the Environmental Impact Statement/Design Concept Report for the North-South Corridor Study, as well as allow people to comment on the study.

The Alternatives Section Report evaluated all the potential locations for the proposed highway and narrowed it down to possible corridors. Once completed, the North-South Corridor Study will identify a preferred alignment for the proposed transportation corridor in Pinal County. 

The public is invited to attend the meetings and learn more about the study, possible routes and to provide comments.

All meetings will be held from 6 – 8 p.m. with a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m. followed by an open house. The meetings are at the following locations: 

  • Monday, Nov. 17 – Walker Butte Elementary School, 29697 N. Desert Willow Blvd., San Tan Valley
  • Tuesday, Nov. 18 – Santa Cruz High School, 900 N. Main St., Eloy
  • Wednesday, Nov. 19 – Apache Junction High School, 2525 S. Ironwood Drive, Apache Junction
  • Thursday, Nov. 20 – Coolidge-Florence Elks Lodge, 2241 N. Attaway Road, Coolidge
