ADOT taking comments on I-10, Aviation Parkway improvements

Pima County residents will have another opportunity to comment on plans to improve traffic flow along Interstate 10 and State Route 210 in Tucson during a public meeting in late November.

The meeting is scheduled for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, at Apollo Middle School, 265 W. Nebraska St., in Tucson. A formal presentation begins at 6 p.m.

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration are in the second phase of a study to determine how best to improve mobility along Interstate 10 from Interstate 19 to Kolb Road southeast of downtown Tucson. The study also will identify an alignment for an extension to State Route 210 (Barraza Aviation Parkway), which runs southeast from downtown Tucson, that would connect with I-10 and help reduce congestion in that area.

The public meeting will include display boards showing options being considered for both routes. After a brief formal presentation, attendees will have the chance to speak with project team members to ask questions and share ideas.

Public comments will be accepted during the meeting and on the project website, azdot.gov/i10sr210study. You also can call the project hotline at 888.692.2678, email to i10SR210Study@hdrinc.com and mail comments to ADOT Community Relations, 1221 S. Second Ave., Tucson, AZ 85713. To be included in the study record, comments must be received by Dec. 30.

Previous meetings on this project were held in the Tucson area in February 2017.

The first phase of the study, completed in 2015, included an engineering feasibility report that examined future transportation needs and potential corridor improvements to both I-10 and SR 210.  This phase, expected to be completed by 2019, includes the preparation of a Design Concept Report and Environmental Assessment.
