This week marked the 1-year anniversary of the start of the Ina Interchange Project construction. A lot has been done in those 12 months and Arizona Department of Transportation photographers came out earlier this month to capture some of the progress that the project has undergone.
With the completion of this project, Ina Road will become elevated and pass over I-10 and the Union Pacific Railroad. The existing frontage roads and ramps will require reconstruction to intersect with the crossroad in its reconstructed (elevated) position.
The project includes two-lane, one-way frontage roads along each side of I-10 and necessary crossroad widening at the frontage road intersections and eliminate the existing at-grade railroad crossings of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks at Ina Road.
As part of the project the bridge over the Santa Cruz on Ina Road will be rebuilt and expanded to four lanes.
