PHOENIX (October 21, 2020) — With a goal of reducing traffic congestion on I-10 near Wild Horse Pass, the Arizona Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Gila River Indian Community, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Federal Highway Administration and the Maricopa Association of Governments, invites the public to participate in a live, call-in/online public meeting to learn about the I-10 study and to provide feedback on the alternatives being evaluated.
This study will evaluate and assess the benefits and impacts for a range of feasible alternatives, including a no-build alternative.
