Public hearings start Monday on a proposed highway between Apache Junction and Eloy. The “North-South Corridor” would link U.S. 60 to I-10 through the San Tan Valley.

The Arizona Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration are hosting four public hearings in Pinal County this month.

They’ll unveil a recently completed list of alternative routes for the proposed 45-mile transportation corridor. It’s part of the environmental impact statement portion of the project.

Members of the public are invited to comment on the plan. Monday’s meeting will be held at Walker Butte Elementary School in Queen Creek.  

There’s another hearing Tuesday night at Santa Cruz High School in Eloy.  There will be a meeting at Apache Junction High School Wednesday evening and another Thursday night at the Coolidge-Florence Elks Lodge in Coolidge.
