32nd Street debate fuels homeowner’s uncertainty

As the Arizona Department of Transportation analyzes community feedback before deciding whether to add a South Mountain Freeway interchange at 32nd Street, Richard Slapke knows he’s damned if it does – and damned if it doesn’t.

A ramp from that interchange would run no more than 10 feet from his backyard. Without it, the freeway won’t be that much farther away.

Or it could be less.

Right now, he’s as much in the dark as six other homeowners on East Redwood Court, just west of 32nd Street, and about 20 more east of 32nd Street along East Cedarwood Lane.
