Transportation Studies

State Route 30

Study Update: November 1, 2017

The Arizona Department of Transportation is studying State Route 30 (previously known as State Route 801), a potential new transportation corridor that could provide additional freeway traffic capacity south of Interstate 10 in the West Valley. The study area is shown on the map and generally extends from Sarival Avenue on the west to 59th Avenue on the east, and Lower Buckeye Road on the north to the Gila and Salt rivers on the south. The project spans about 14 miles and passes through the cities of Goodyear, Avondale and Phoenix and portion of unincorporated Maricopa County.

In early 2015, after several years of study, ADOT presented the public four alignment alternatives (North, Center, Hybrid, and South). All four alternatives were rigorously evaluated using a comprehensive screening process of 24 technical (environmental and engineering) criteria, eight cost and right-of-way criteria, and seven agency and public support criteria. Also under consideration is a no-build option which explores the impacts of not building a transportation corridor in the study area.

Why the Hybrid Alignment was selected as the Recommended Build Alternative (RBA)

Several issues were identified within the North, Center and South alternatives including relocation of elementary schools, complex technical and cost challenges, proximity to sensitive ecosystems, and flood control liability requirements. The Hybrid Alternative was chosen as the RBA because it avoids the major issues associated with the North, Center and South Alternatives.

The RBA selection means that if a build alternative is ultimately selected, it would be built within that corridor.  The Environmental Assessment will evaluate the RBA as compared to the no-build alternative, with a public hearing scheduled in the fall of 2018.  A preferred alternative will be selected following the public hearing. If you would like to be notified via email regarding updates or when hearing is scheduled, please subscribe to the SR 30 email notification.

Study Update: April 29, 2015

The study team continues to evaluate the four potential alignments and no-build option for SR 30. The study team initially had thought a recommended alignment would be suggested by April 2015, but before a recommended alignment can be suggested, the study team has some additional criteria to evaluate. Once the study team suggests a recommended alignment, information will be posted to this project website, and a public hearing will be scheduled. If you would like to be notified via email when the recommended alignment is suggested or hearing is scheduled, please subscribe to the SR 30 email notification. The hearing will be your opportunity to provide feedback on the recommended alignment.

The Arizona Department of Transportation is continuing to study, State Route 30 (previously known as State Route 801), a potential new transportation corridor that would provide some relief to Interstate 10. The study area is shown in the map and generally extends from Perryville Road on the west to 59th Avenue on the east, and Lower Buckeye Road on the north to the Gila and Salt Rivers on the south. The project spans about 14 miles and passes through the cities of Goodyear, Avondale, and Phoenix and portions of unincorporated Maricopa County.

Potential Alignments

The study team has developed four potential alignments for SR 30. At this time, a recommended alternative has not been chosen.
