Public Hearing for Interstate 10: Ina to Ruthrauff Roads Traffic Interchanges Study on June 21
TUCSON - The Arizona Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration, invite the community to attend a public hearing for the Interstate 10: Ina to Ruthrauff roads traffic interchanges study.
Date: Thursday, June 21
Time: 5 to 7:30 p.m. (Presentation begins at 5:15 p.m.)
Location: Ellie Towne Flowing Wells Community Center
1660 W. Ruthrauff Road, Tucson, AZ 85705
The purpose of the hearing is to obtain public comment on the Draft Environmental Assessment for the project. Attendees of the meeting will have an opportunity to view both the project's Draft Environmental Assessment and the Initial Design Concept Report, which evaluates proposed alternatives - including the consequences of not making any improvements in the study area (no-build alternative).
The proposed improvements aim to increase capacity and enhance safety on I-10 between Ina and Ruthrauff roads for motorists and truck traffic. Potential improvements include freeway reconstruction and widening; improvement of traffic interchanges and crossroads; grade separation of crossroads and railroad crossings at Ina, Sunset and Ruthrauff roads; and reconstruction and widening of bridges over Orange Grove Road, the Cañada del Oro Wash and Rillito Creek.
Residents, organizations, businesses and affected motorists will have an opportunity to view the alternatives, discuss individual and property-specific concerns with project team members, and share their thoughts and opinions at the public hearing. Maps, displays and handouts of the proposed build alternative will also be available for viewing.
The Draft Environmental Assessment document is available for viewing online at www.azdot.gov/ina2rr and a hard copy is available for review at the following locations:
