Governor Doug Ducey praises partnerships that will bring more than $300 million of investments to Interstate 17 and make travel to Flagstaff and the northern part of the state easier. At a press conference in September, Ducey, transportation leaders and local elected officials announced plans to widen I-17 between Anthem and Black Canyon City, including 8 miles of flex lanes between Black Canyon City and Sunset Point. Construction will begin in 2021. MAG is contributing $50 million to the project. MAG Executive Director Eric Anderson participated in the event.
