Widen I10 between Phoenix and Casa Grande

This petition had 695 supporters

The stretch of I-10 between Phoenix and Casa Grande is one of the most traveled and most dangerous highways in the country, yet it remains a 2 lane highway. Population growth and increased traffic flows indicate the widening of this Interstate is long overdue.

In fact, the 27-mile stretch of highway between Casa Grande and Chandler is considered so dangerous that it has been designated as a "Safety Corridor" by the Arizona Department of Transportation. Safety Corridors are segments of highways that have more crashes, injuries and deaths than would ordinarily be expected.

In an article by the Coolidge Examiner from July 20, 2016, an ADOT spokesman indicated that challenges are funding and an agreement with the Gila River Indian Community. We desperately need assistance from our elected officials to ensure that I-10 is widened sooner rather than later.

The inevitable growth of Casa Grande and surrounding areas in the Phoenix-Tucson corridor also depends on this stretch of highway. There are several large-scale companies interested in Casa Grande for future development, but their concerns include access from Phoenix (which is made possible with this stretch of I-10).

Please help in the efforts to widen I-10 so that our community can travel safely to and from Phoenix, and so that our industrial and business opportunities continue to grow. We have a lot of potential in the coming years, but that requires safe commutes for everyone!

If you believe the widening of I-10 is a critical issue please take a moment and add your name to this petition, thank you.
