The Tempe-Phoenix Freight Study is a joint effort between the City of Tempe, the City of Phoenix, Maricopa County, and the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG). The study will make recommendations for projects and policies that 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 will facilitate two stakeholder and public outreach events through the duration of the project. The meetings will provide information and an opportunity for the public and stakeholders to provide comments on the study.

In addition to these opportunities, MAG is hosting an online interactive comment map to collect additional comments and feedback.


The project started in March 2020 and will conclude in December 2020 with a final report containing improvement recommendations for the study area.
