In 2018, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) began an environmental study to potentially realign Ivanhoe Street and include ramps to the future Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway to address access and traffic concerns. The study of this interchange has also been supported by the Maricopa County Department of Transportation and the Maricopa Association of Governments. The renderings below show the proposed design concept of an Ivanhoe Street interchange.
As part of the environmental study, ADOT requested C202P to draft preliminary design plans to determine the feasibility of adding an interchange without acquiring additional properties. Also, ADOT began an environmental re-evaluation to determine the feasibility and analyze any changes in environment and social impacts of adding an interchange.
