Supervisors have mixed reactions to proposed Pinal freeway corridor

By Mark Cowling | Casa Grande Dispatch

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors discussed what members liked and didn’t like about the Arizona Department of Transportation’s “preferred corridor” for a future north-south freeway at a work session Wednesday.

Supervisor Todd House, R-Apache Junction said he liked the alignment along Mountain View Road in the northern part of the project. “The original alignment with Ironwood would’ve been chaos.”

Supervisors Chairman Mike Goodman, R-San Tan Valley disagreed, saying the corridor is 8 miles east of the county’s biggest population center, San Tan Valley. He said ADOT’s proposal is great for the State Land Department, but “it doesn’t do much for our needs.”

Goodman said the alignment that received the formal support of Pinal County and the affected cities and towns “made perfect sense.”
