MAG concluded the Southwest Freight Subarea Project Assessment in 2019. Freight subarea assessments are intended to recommend projects and policies that move goods more efficiently and safely through existing industrial clusters of Maricopa County, fostering the development of a diverse and economically thriving place to work and live.

The subarea assessment focus is on commercial truck freight operations and how freight interacts with other modes of transportation such as passenger cars, freight rail, transit, bicycles, and pedestrians. This study detailed the existing conditions of the major intersections and roadways within the Southwest study area.

The project assessment:

  • Developed an inventory of corridor needs, including intersection and movement, to reduce congestion and improve safety. 
  • Recommended phased solutions to reduce congestion and improve safety for all modes (vehicles, trucks, bicycles, pedestrians, transit) through innovative and traditional methods.
