The proposed Interstate 11 corridor that could go through the Maricopa area is causing a feud with those residing in the Hidden Valley and Thunderbird Farms area.

The project of the Arizona Department of Transportation is in its early stages of planning, with the public comment period ending on Tuesday.

The extensive project is to create a north-south highway between Nogales and Wickenburg, eventually connecting U.S. markets to Canada and Mexico. It has been considered for more than 25 years and has finally started the beginning stages of the project in various segments, including through the city of Maricopa.

According to David Maestas, transportation policy manager for the city, the Tier 1 environmental impact study is the first federal document in the process. The public comment period has been open for about three months and has given residents a chance to provide input on the planned corridor.
