The Ina Road Overpass project is well underway, but there are still nearly two years of construction left. With so much of the area torn up, it can be difficult to envision what the finished area will look like, but thanks to an ADOT artist’s rendering, we can start to see why all the hassle may be worth it. For more info on the project, go to the ADOT website www.azdot.gov/projects/

The overpass will allow drivers travelling on Ina Road to go over freeway traffic, as well as the Union Pacific Rail Road tracks, meaning no more long waits when a train passes by and a lot safer of a situation.

The project will resemble those completed at Twin Peaks, Prince Road and Miracle Mile. After Ina Road is completed, Ruthrauff is next.

A wide sidewalk will allow pedestrians to easily cross from one side of I-10 to the other. Before it was next to impossible to have pedestrians get across in a safe manner.

The new construction will include artistic elements that evoke the themes of Southwestern art and architecture.

I-10 will eventually be expanded to 4-lanes in each direction with room for more expansion down the line.
