ADOT calls public meeting on South Mountain Loop study
|By Doug Murphy Staff Writer
The Arizona Department of Transportation will hold a meeting on Tuesday to update residents on efforts to find a route for the South Mountain Loop 202 freeway.
The freeway was originally set to go where Pecos Road is now. In response to opposition to the Pecos alignment, ADOT began a three year, $6 million study last year to determine if the freeway is even needed, and if so where it should be built.
The meeting will be held at Kyrene de los Lagos Elementary School, 17001 S. 34th Way, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. April 30.
"It's a good chance to ask our ADOT study team members some questions," department spokesman Doug Nintzel said.
The South Mountain Corridor Study area runs from Interstate 10 in Ahwatukee Foothills west around South Mountain Park and back to I-10 between 43rd and 100th avenues.
Officials from the ADOT study team will discuss the status of the project, present some of the alternatives that have been suggested for a freeway route and talk about the future of the study.
