I-10 improvements meeting to be held Thursday in Buckeye

New travel lanes, interchange upgrades planned west of Verrado Way

Planned Interstate 10 improvements including new travel lanes in the Buckeye area will be discussed at a public information meeting Thursday evening, June 21.

The Arizona Department of Transportation will host the meeting at the Coyote Branch Library in Buckeye to provide information and receive comments about an upcoming scheduled project to add a third lane in both directions along I-10 between Verrado Way and State Route 85. Improvements to the I-10 interchanges at Miller and Watson roads also are planned.

The meeting is scheduled as follows:

When: 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 21 (formal presentation at 6:15 p.m.)

Where: Coyote Branch Library, 21699 W. Yuma Road, Suite 116, Buckeye

Who: ADOT staff will answer questions and accept public comments about the planned I-10 improvements between Verrado Way and SR 85.

As part of the Maricopa Association of Governments’ Regional Transportation Plan approved by Maricopa County voters in 2004, the I-10 improvement project between Verrado Way and SR 85 is scheduled for construction starting in 2020.

To help manage traffic growth in coming years, diverging diamond or conventional diamond designs are being considered for improvements at the I-10 interchanges at Miller and Watson roads.

Those who can’t attend Thursday’s meeting can submit comments by July 23 via email to projects@azdot.gov or via mail to: ADOT Community Relations, ATTN: I-10: SR 85 to Verrado Way, 1655 W. Jackson Street, MD 126F, Phoenix, AZ 85007.
