North-South Corridor Project, Segment 1: What San Tan Valley Residents Need to Know

north-south

Plans are in motion for the North-South Corridor Project, which aims to span roughly 50 miles connecting US60 in Apache Junction to I-10 in Eloy. The first segment, stretching 20 miles from US 60 to Arizona Farms Road, was the topic of a virtual meeting held last night, revealing pivotal details and insight.

Here's what was unveiled:

  • Land Ownership: A significant portion of the land between Skyline Road and Baseline Road is currently vacant and owned by the Arizona State Trust Land Department. This might streamline certain aspects of construction, as fewer private property negotiations would be needed.
  • Road Extensions: Talks surfaced regarding the potential extensions of several local roads to connect directly to the North-South Corridor. These roads include Ocotillo, Combs, Skyline, and Bella Vista. Such extensions could vastly improve local access to the new corridor.
  • Feedback from Residents: Residents and other interested parties are encouraged to weigh in on the project. Comments can be submitted online at NorthSouth-Segment1 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. It's crucial to get these comments in by September 27, 2023, so they can be considered in the current study phase.
  • Timeline and Funding: The current study phase is anticipated to run for approximately three years. However, a significant roadblock arises when looking at the funding side. At present, there is no funding allocated for the design or development of this corridor. Additionally, the project isn't currently listed in ADOT's 5-year transportation plan, which may raise concerns about its future progression.
  • Corridor Route: The corridor, in its entirety, will venture east of the CAP, beginning in Apache Junction. It will pass through a minor portion of Queen Creek before predominantly stretching through San Tan Valley. The subsequent segment, Segment 2, will be up for discussion in 2024. This will concern the connection from Arizona Farms Rd in San Tan Valley, journeying through the Town of Florence and concluding at I-10 in Eloy.

This ambitious project holds the potential to transform the connectivity of the region, but there are many steps ahead. San Tan Valley residents are urged to stay informed and participate in the dialogue to shape the project that could redefine the area's transportation dynamics.
