The Tempe-Phoenix Freight Study was a joint effort between the City of Tempe, the City of Phoenix, Maricopa County, and the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG). The study has made recommendations for projects and policies that will move goods more efficiently and safely through existing industrial clusters of Maricopa County. The study focuses on commercial truck freight operations, but also considers how freight interacts with other modes of transportation.

Public Involvement Opportunities

The project team facilitated two stakeholder meetings throughout the duration of the project. The meetings provided information and an opportunity for stakeholders to provide comments on the study. MAG also hosted an online interactive comment map to collect comments and feedback from the public. Public comments to the study were provided and can be found by clicking the link below. These comments were used for improvement area recommendations.


The project started in March 2020 and concluded in January 2021 with a final report containing improvement recommendations for the study area. The final report can be viewed under the ‘Materials’ section.
