PHOENIX — The Arizona House of Representatives has approved a bill sponsored by Rep. David Cook that supports development of the proposed North-South Corridor highway project in Pinal County.
The proposed freeway to run from Interstate 10 in Picacho to U.S. 60 near Gold Canyon would improve transit in the Pinal County region and serve residents in the San Tan Valley and East Valley areas.
“The North-South Corridor highway is a long-needed project serving the transportation needs in Pinal County and our state,” Cook, R-Globe, said in a statement. “I appreciate the bipartisan backing of my House colleagues and hope those in the Senate will join us in supporting the bill.”
