SIGNAL PEAK — The good news for some major Pinal County highway projects is that nearly all designs, paperwork and intergovernmental agreements are in place to facilitate their approval. Unfortunately, there’s a roadblock, and it’s a big one: money.
According to county officials, everything from the I-10 widening to the proposed North-South Corridor freeway are contingent on finding more financial resources, some of which are held up in the infrastructure bills that have stalled in Congress.
“Money is the transportation problem all the way around,” said Casa Grande Mayor Craig McFarland. “We are at probably $620 million short for I-10.”
