Public invited to formal hearing for proposed Loop 303 extension south of Van Buren Street

Post Date:06/13/2018 8:53 AM

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration invite members of the public to a formal hearing to review and comment on the findings of the Draft Environmental Assessment and the Initial Design Concept Report for Loop 303 between Van Buren Street and the proposed State Route 30 in the Goodyear area.

Date: Wednesday, June 27

Time: 3 – 7 p.m. (open house format; no formal presentation)

Location: Goodyear Ballpark, 1933 S. Ballpark Way, Goodyear, AZ 85338

The public hearing will include an informational video, an interactive visual animation and an opportunity to provide oral remarks before a formal study panel (three-minute time limit). Comment forms and court reporters will also be available to document public input for the study record. Project team members will be on-site to address questions and concerns.

The project team has been studying options for Loop 303 to extend south of Van Buren Street to the proposed State Route 30, south of MC 85. The team has selected a preferred alternative route for the proposed Loop 303 -  Alternative 2C South – and is also evaluating the “No-Build” alternative.  At this time, SR 30 near the proposed Loop 303 remains a proposed future freeway in the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) region.

The Draft Environmental Assessment and Initial Design Concept Report are now available for public review online at azdot.gov/Loop303southofvanburen or at the locations below through July 15, 2018:
