Design Concept Report and Environmental Assessment
The purpose of this project is to evaluate long-term improvements (2030) to I-19 between San Xavier Road and the I-10/I-19 traffic interchange north of the Ajo Way interchange. ADOT is requesting comments and suggestions on the long-term solution for this portion of I-19 from all community members in the surrounding area and from those who travel I-19.
- Accommodate travel demand along the project corridor through the design year 2030 by increasing capacity and providing efficient travel operation.
- Maintain I-19 as part of a Congressionally-designated high priority corridor for international trade.
- Consider new traffic interchanges near Drexel Road and Los Reales Road to address growth in these areas.
- Correct any roadway deficiencies to meet current traffic engineering standards.
- Maintain pedestrian access across I-19 near the Michigan Street alignment.
Initial I-19 Plans for 2013: Valencia Road to Ajo Way
Travel lanes would be added to address the immediate needs between Valencia Road and Ajo Way. The Project Assessment recommended adding two lanes in each direction between Valencia Road and Ajo Way that would include:
- The reconstruction of the I-19 Irvington Road and Ajo Way traffic interchanges
- A new pedestrian bridge located between Irvington Road and Ajo Way would be constructed to replace the existing bridge and to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
