Pinal County holding meetings regarding East-West transportation study

Pinal County is holding two open meetings to get public input on a possible transportation corridor between State Route 347 and Interstate 10.

Since the December 2011 public scoping meetings, possible parkway-concept corridor alternatives have been identified to provide additional capacity and connectivity.  In addition, the team is also evaluating the consequences of not constructing a new transportation facility, known as the No Build Alternative.

Pinal County and the cities of Maricopa and Casa Grande are encouraging members of the public to attend one of the two community information meetings.  The purpose of the meetings is to engage the public for comments and suggestions on the proposals and alternatives.

A brief presentation on the study will be made at each meeting, followed by an open house at which representatives from the cities, county and study team can answer questions.  The presentation will be the same at each meeting.  In addition, detailed maps displaying the initial parkway concepts will be available at the meetings.
