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.
Disclosure: Rose Law Group represents the developers of Dreamport Village.
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.
