MOBILE, Ariz. (AP) - Federal authorities will allow an Arizona city to construct a road in an area consisting largely of public land that is expected to improve emergency response times.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reported Monday that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management filed the decision April 26 that will allow the city of Goodyear to build the Sonoran Valley Parkway near the Maricopa-Pinal County line.

The decision grants a 250-foot-wide (about 76 meter) right of way for the two-lane parkway with the possibility of future expansion.

The parkway will provide a direct route in the southern part of the city 19 miles (about 31 kilometers) west of Phoenix that connects to the community of Mobile and State Route 238.

Goodyear officials must finalize the parkway’s design prior to construction.
