I-10 Expansion Update
TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Construction on the last remaining two-lane stretch of I-10 between Tucson and Phoenix is scheduled to begin in 2023, with a completion date set for 2026.
Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation on Wednesday, May 4 that will earmark $400 million for the expedited completion of the expansion project.
This expansion will add a lane between Chandler and Casa Grande in the freeway segment known as the Wild Horse Pass Corridor.
“This legislation ensures everyone in Arizona can get to their destination safely and quickly, even as our state continues to grow,” Governor Ducey said. “We’re not going to have the endless traffic jams that you see in cities like Los Angeles, where men and women are stuck in their cars for hours every day.
The governor’s office credits the Senate bill containing the allowance with “strong bipartisan support.”
