Tucson Public Hearing For I-10/SR 210 Study Set For Nov. 20

PHOENIX – Tucson area residents will have an opportunity to receive information and weigh-in on study to one day connect Interstate 10 and State Route 210 at a public hearing Wednesday, November 20.

Proposed changes being studied include:

● Designating Alvernon Way as SR 210 from Golf Links Road to I-10 and providing four travel lanes in each direction

● Adding a system interchange to provide access between SR 210 and I-10

● Adding up to two lanes in each direction on I-10 between the I-10/I-19 interchange and Alvernon Way

● Adding up to four lanes in each direction on I-10 between Alvernon Way and Kolb Road

The study team is also evaluating a no-build option, the condition that would exist if ADOT did nothing, which also serves as a comparison.

Members of the Arizona Department of Transportation study team will be available to answer questions.

The study proposes changes to about 11 miles of I-10 from I-19 to east of Kolb Road. The public hearing is scheduled as follows:

What: I-10/SR 210 public hearing
When: Wednesday, Nov. 20, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (formal presentation at 6 p.m., followed by a public hearing)
Where: Billy L. Lauffer Middle School, 5385 E. Littletown Road, Tucson

The study includes an Initial Design Concept Report and Draft Environmental Assessment that can be found here.

The purpose of the study is relieving congestion and improving traffic flow on I-10 and connecting the east end of SR 210 (Barraza Aviation Parkway) with I-10 to improve access to and from the downtown Tucson area.

Members of the public can review the study and provide input until December 12.
