The following is the Pinal RTA proposed projects for consideration.

State Route 24 Parkway

This project involves the new construction of a five mile, east-west, limited access four lane parkway facility with a median between State Route 24 at Meridian Road to the West, and the future alignment of the North-South Corridor to the East. The project scope involves the purchase of land to establish a 300-foot wide right of way corridor, to include design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway is approximately $48.0 million.

North-South Corridor

This project involves the new construction of a 36 mile, north-south, limited access four lane parkway facility with a median between U.S. Highway 60 in the City of Apache Junction to the north, and the Kortsen Road/Kleck Road alignment located to the south, in the City of Coolidge. The project scope involves the purchase of land to establish a 300-foot wide right of way corridor, and the design and construction of the parkway. The estimated cost of this roadway is approximately $345.6 million.

State Route 347

This project calls for the addition of two lanes along State Route 347 between the Pinal-Maricopa County line to the North, and the municipal boundary of the City of Maricopa to the south. This represents a linear distance of approximately nine miles. The new construction of a north traveling lane and a south traveling lane along State Route 347 represents a total of 18 additional lane miles of construction. The project scope involves design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $28.8 million.

Casa Grande Connector

Referred to as the Kortsen Road/Kleck Road alignment, the “Casa Grande Connector” project involves the widening of this facility from two lanes to four lanes from Henness Road to the West, located in the City of Casa Grande, to the future alignment of the North-South Corridor Parkway to the East, located in the City of Coolidge. The widening of the Casa Grande Connector will involve a 14 mile corridor, and represents a total of 28 additional lane miles of roadway construction. The project scope involves the purchase of necessary right of way, design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $44.8 million.

I-10 Traffic Interchange

This project allows for the purchase of right of way, and the design and construction of a Traffic Interchange at Interstate 10, in the City of Casa Grande. This particular project involves the construction of a bridge across Interstate 10, as well as on and off-ramps to Kleck and Kortsen Roads. This project will allow for the continuation of a crucial east-west corridor in central Pinal County. The estimated cost of this project is approximately $15.0 million.

Selma Highway

The Selma Highway project calls for improvements to an existing two-lane roadway from Thornton Road to the West, located in the City of Casa Grande, to the future North-South Corridor alignment to the East, located near the City of Coolidge. The project scope involves design and construction, and the purchase of right of way for various segments of the corridor. It also includes approximately four miles of new construction over graded non-paved roadway segments, and a crossing over a drainage canal and railroad tracks at State Route 84. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $25.6 million.

Thornton Road

This project involves the widening of Thornton Road from two lanes to four lanes from State Route 84 to the North, to Interstate 8 to the south. The widening of Thornton Road will involve a 3.5 mile linear corridor, and represents a total of seven additional lane miles of roadway construction. The project scope involves the purchase of necessary right of way, design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $11.2 million.

Burris Road

Burris Road is an important “regional” economic development project in a high job growth area, and involves widening the roadway from two lanes to four lanes from State Route 84 to the North, to Alamo Road to the South, located in the City of Casa Grande. The widening of Burris Road will involve a 1.5 mile corridor, and represents a total of three miles of additional lane miles of roadway construction. The project scope involves the purchase of necessary right of way, design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $4.8 million.

Montgomery Road This project involves improvements to the Montgomery Road Corridor from the Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway to the North, located in the City of Casa Grande, to Interstate 8 to the South. The project corridor is eight miles in length, and will call for the construction of approximately four miles of new roadway. The intent is to develop a connective, north-south, two-lane roadway facility that is fully improved. The project scope involves the purchase of necessary right of way, design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $25.6 million.

New Road in Saddlebrooke

The new road, located in the southern Pinal County community of Saddlebrooke, is a one-mile long, north-south, two lane minor arterial roadway facility. The project scope involves the purchase of necessary right of way, design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $2.5 million.

Peters Road

Peters Road represents another important “regional” economic development project in a future high job growth area, and involves widening the roadway from two lanes to four lanes from Burris Road to the West, to Thornton Road to the East, located in the City of Casa Grande. The widening of Peters Road will involve a one mile linear corridor, and represents a total of two miles of additional lanes of roadway construction. The project scope involves the purchase of necessary right of way, design and construction. The estimated cost of this roadway project is approximately $3.2 million.
