North-South Corridor


Arizona Department of Transportation, in cooperation with Pinal County, is in the next phase of the North-South Corridor study segment south of US 60. The North-South Corridor Design Concept Report Tier 2 Environmental Study from US 60 to Arizona Farms Road (Segment 1) will:

  • Narrow the selected 1,500-foot corridor to a proposed 400-foot freeway alignment.
  • Identify environmental considerations and mitigation efforts.
  • Identify interchange locations and design concepts.
  • Develop other design features.

In-person public meetings were held on Sept. 12 and 14 and a virtual public meeting will be held Sept. 20 to provide an overview of the Tier 2 study process, seek input on the NSCS Segment 1 and answer questions.

  • Wednesday, Sept. 20 | 6 – 7 p.m. Virtual

Details about the meeting, including the meeting materials and prerecorded presentation, are available at

The public is invited to provide their comments on the study through Sept. 27.


The North-South, or NSCS, Segment 1 study area spans approximately 20 miles and extends from the town of Florence in the south to Apache Junction in the north. The study team will further evaluate NSCS Segment 1 to identify a preferred North-South alternative, which would include the alignment, interchange locations and other design features and evaluate associated environmental impacts and mitigation.

This study will build upon the purpose and need identified in the previous Tier 1 North-South Corridor Study which was to provide a continuous, access-controlled north-to-south transportation corridor that would:

  • Improve access to future activity centers
  • Improve regional mobility
  • Improve north-to-south connectivity
  • Integrate the region’s transportation network
  • Address existing and future population and employment growth
  • Provide an alternative to avoid congestion on I-10
