Arizona lands $90 million to expand Interstate 17 north of Phoenix526Arizona lands $90 million to expand Interstate 17 north of Phoenixhttps://www.phoenix.gov/econdev/inthenews/526<div class="ExternalClassBC02192266914430976C66D39C85F1A1"> <figure> <img src="/econdevsite/MediaAssets/EconomyUpdate/UPDATE-20190723-I17-Milepost-247.jpg" alt="An aerial view of I-17 freeway at milepost 247 looking east towards Agua Fria National Monument." /> <div style="text-align:center;"> <figcaption><em>Interstate 17 shown near Milepost 247 adjoining the Agua Fria National Monument, north of Black Canyon City, Arizona, U.S.</em><br>​​Image: Arizona Department of Transportation</figcaption></div> </figure> <div style="text-align:center;"><h3><span style="font-size:15px;">Grant will bolster improvements north of Phoenix starting by 2021</span>​<br></h3></div>​ <div style="text-align:center;"> <em>From the Arizona Department of Transportation</em></div><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">The Governor’s Office and the Arizona Department of Transportation today announced Arizona has won a highly competitive $90 million federal highway grant to help expand and improve Interstate 17 north of Phoenix, including a flex lanes system between Black Canyon City and the Sunset Point Rest Area.</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">The Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant, awarded to the Arizona Department of Transportation by the Federal Highway Administration, will be used as part of an estimated $320 million project to add lanes along 23 miles of I-17 between Anthem Way and Sunset Point. Construction is scheduled to begin by 2021 and be completed in 2023.</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">“This is exciting news for Arizona and our growing economy,” said Governor Ducey. “Arizona’s fiscally conservative, balanced budget made significant investments in our state’s infrastructure. This additional funding will expand Interstate 17 in a critical commerce corridor, helping reduce congestion, improve traffic flow and increase public safety. My thanks to the Arizona Department of Transportation and all of our regional and federal partners for their hard work and advocacy on behalf of Arizona.”</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">“This is great news for the entire state and in particular for those living in and traveling to northern Arizona,” ADOT Director John Halikowski said. “I thank all of ADOT’s partners at the local, regional and federal level, including members of our congressional delegation and the Maricopa Association of Governments, for helping us move this much-needed project forward.”</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">The improvements to I-17 north of Phoenix are one of the state’s transportation priorities because that area regularly experiences heavy congestion due to crashes, disabled vehicles and increased weekend traffic.</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">The state budget recently passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Doug Ducey included an investment of $130 million in state funds to allow full construction of third lanes along the highway between Anthem Way and Black Canyon City as part of the larger I-17 improvement project.</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">Meanwhile, flex lanes along 8 miles of I-17 north of Black Canyon City will operate as a separate two-lane facility to carry one direction of traffic at any one time depending on need, with movable gates at end to control access. For example, the flex lanes will carry heavier northbound I-17 traffic on a Friday and southbound traffic on a Sunday. They also could provide extra lanes in one direction if an incident closes the regular I-17 lanes in the area between Black Canyon City and Sunset Point.</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">“I-17 plays a key role in moving people and products in Arizona and national commerce between regional and international markets, including Mexico,” Halikowski said. “There are no reasonable alternative routes when traffic on I-17 is impacted. That’s why this is both a state and national priority.” </span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">Environmental studies for the I-17 corridor north of Phoenix are scheduled for completion later this year.</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:15px;">According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, this round of the Infrastructure Rebuilding America discretionary grant program is making available between $855 million and $902.5 million for projects that help rebuild America’s infrastructure.</span></p> <figure><img src="/econdevsite/MediaAssets/EconomyUpdate/UPDATE-20190723-I-17-Flex-Lanes.jpg" alt="Map of the area to be improved with flex lanes on I-17 between Anthem and Cordes Junction" /> <div style="text-align:center;"> <figcaption><em>Projecct improvements will be constructed in the corridor from Anthem Way to Cordes Junction. <br>Flex lanes will move traffic northbound on Fridays and southbound on Sundays.</em><br>​Image: Arizona Department of Transportation</figcaption></div> </figure>​​​​<br></div>7/23/2019 5:00:00 PMhttps://azdot.gov/media/News/news-release/2019/07/22/arizona-awarded-$90-million-federal-grant-to-expand-i-17
