ADOT Plans Meeting on Proposed State Route 30 in West Phoenix

If you live in West Phoenix and are looking for something to do tomorrow evening, you might consider attending a public meeting on a planned new state highway in the area.

The east-west State Route 30 would extend from 59th Avenue to Perryville Road, between Lower Buckeye Road on the north side and the Gila and Salt rivers on the south. Four alignments within those boundaries, along with a "no build" option, are being considered, and Arizona Department of Transportation officials will share information and solicit feedback on the plans tomorrow (Wednesday, January 21) from 5 to 7 p.m. at Fowler Elementary School, 6707 W. Van Buren Street in Phoenix.

SR 30 is intended to provide additional freeway-traffic capacity south of Interstate 10 in the West Valley, ADOT said in a news release. A map included with the release shows the highway would link up with the planned expansions of State Route 202 (known locally as Loop 202) and State Route 303.

The project is currently unfunded and anticipated for construction after 2026, ADOT said.

Requesting additional information the proposed SR 30 on acquisition process

WE CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL 2026! I HAVE SAT IN THAT TRAFFIC ALMOST DAILY. ITS A PROBLEM NOW ITS ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE. THE NEW GROWTH IN THE AREA IS ONLY GOING TO HANDICAP THE AREA. DUE TO TRAFFIC IT MAKES ME WANT TO LEAVE THE AREA OF LAVEEN. THANKS EVA HARWOOD

The freeway needs to be extended to downtown, to really take pressure off if I-10. This will reduce congestion much better than any light rail would. Phoenix needs alternate roads, not modes. Rail lines are a waste of $
