Black Mountain Boulevard (BMB) is a planned major arterial roadway in the City of Phoenix General Plan extending south approximately five miles from the Sonoran Boulevard/Cave Creek Road intersection to the ramp connections at SR 51 and Loop 101. This roadway will significantly improve access within the Desert View Village area of north Phoenix. Since 1994, the BMB ramp connections to SR 51 were planned as part of the Outer Loop Freeway system. Preliminary Engineering and an Environmental Assessment started in late 2011 and the team studied a range of alternatives, including a “no connection to SR 51” option. A series of public meetings were held in January, March and April and August 2012.
Based on the results of the Study’s Alternatives Evaluation Process, the build Alternative 1A (south of Deer Valley Road) and 1-N (north of Deer Valley Road), along with the no build Alternative 4 (no connection to SR51) were carried forward through detailed analyses in the Environmental Assessment. The Draft Environmental Assessment was presented at a Public Hearing where further public comments were recorded.
The following items were provided as back-up material at the hearing:
The Final Environmental Assessment was approved by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on October 8, 2013.
