PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Department of Transportation is considering creating a toll road in metro Phoenix.

KPHO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2dt3bxg ) that the Interstate 10 is heavily used by commuters and becomes congested during rush hour.

To alleviate the traffic, transportation officials have proposed a six-lane freeway called State Route 30, which would go south of I-10 and run parallel to it from Loop 303 to the new 202 South Mountain Freeway.

State Route 30 is on a list of long-term projects of the Maricopa Association of Governments, but it has no set start date and has not secured funding. ADOT is studying the possibility of making the highway a toll road, and a MAG representative says it will take time to determine whether that would provide enough money to move forward.
