Type of Action Requested: Resolution

SUBJECT:
Approval of a Resolution in Support of the Sun Corridor MPO to encourage the Arizona Department of Transportation to seek alternative funding for the I-15 roadway improvements.
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff Recommends the Mayor and City Council approve a Resolution in Support of the Sun Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to encourage the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to seek alternative funding for the I-15 transportation roadway improvements.
 
DISCUSSION:
I-15 is a 29-mile stretch of road running through Arizona that provides little to no congestion mitigation, Interstate mobility, or economic benefits to the citizens of Arizona.
 
ADOT has determined that the limited funding available for Greater Arizona may not be sufficient for adequately maintaining all of the existing roadways. The gap between available and required funds is amplified when available funds for greater Arizona are allocated to costly I-15 roadway and transportation improvements. We encourage ADOT to seek alternative sources such as TIGER, FASTLANE Grants, and roadway tolling, to fund I-15 improvements.
 
FISCAL IMPACT:
None
ALTERNATIVES:
Deny Request
