MAG, in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), is developing a scoping study for a section (Durango Link) of the proposed State Route 30 (SR-30, Tres Rios Freeway). This segment will ultimately connect the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway (currently under construction) near 59th Avenue to I-17 near the Durango curve. The study will recommend a corridor for this segment of the SR-30 and other improvements that may be incorporated into a future Regional Transportation Plan.
The SR-30 scoping study is following the Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) process developed by FHWA and adopted by ADOT. The goal is to integrate early planning efforts with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process for a project that would become part of the RTP and TIP based on the results of this study. This study complies with regulations at 23 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) § 450.212 concerning linking planning studies with NEPA. The PEL process allows the following types of long-range planning and environmental analyses to inform the preparation of a future NEPA document:
Agency and Public Scoping Meetings
Existing and Future Conditions Report
Corridor Development and Analysis
Draft Recommended Corridor
Final Recommended Corridor and PEL
