What is Next for the North-South Corridor?
Subsequent Tier 2 environmental and engineering studies would need to be conducted as part of the NEPA process to further refine the selected 1,500-foot North-South Corridor to identify a recommended 400-foot freeway alignment and identify planned interchange locations and other project elements. The Final Tier 1 EIS includes a phased implementation plan with preliminary recommendations for how the North-South Corridor could move forward into Tier 2 studies. The phased implementation plan includes smaller segments of the selected corridor alternative that may advance as separate, independent projects. These studies, which are not yet fully funded, would include additional analysis and more opportunities for public review and comment.
ADOT is considering all funding options to move the North-South Corridor through the Tier 2 study process and eventually to construction.
