The 1,500-acre destination resort developers wish to build near Casa Grande will require a number of infrastructure and utility needs.
Some of them were identified in the development plan Block Sports Company submitted to the city last month. They include the construction of a roadway network that incorporates existing freeways with new infrastructure.
The plan, which calls the project Dreamport Village, outlines the construction of at least four new roadways: a 3.5-mile extension of Henness Road from Interstate 8 to Florence Boulevard, a two-way road from Henness to Peart roads, a road to align along I-8 and a new interchange at Henness Road and I-8.
The Federal Aviation Administration has already determined the Henness Road interchange to be operationally acceptable, according to an October 2016 letter included in the development plan.
