Sonoran Desert Drive Alignment Study

​Sonoran Desert Drive (formerly Lone Mountain Road) has been planned as an east-west arterial roadway between Interstate 17 and northeast Phoenix since 1987.  The Sonoran Desert Drive Alignment study was initiated by community stakeholders in 2011 in order to:

  1. Refine the alignment.
  2. Develop and solicit community feedback for intersection configurations at Sonoran Desert Drive and Dove Valley Road.
  3. Determine connection points between Sonoran Desert Drive and Dove Valley Road.
  4. Define characteristics that make up the Sonoran Desert Drive Scenic Corridor.
