A coalition of organizations headed up by Protecting Arizona Resources and Children, Inc. (PARC), pooling their resources to stop the proposed South Mountain Freeway, submitted their hundreds of pages of comments and exhibits to ADOT in response to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). This is the first step in bringing the flaws in the ADOT planning and review process to light. The plan is to challenge the South Mountain Freeway in federal court and stop it.
The comments included those from a variety of health, environmental, demographic and transportation experts and consultants, who focused on the severe air pollution and adverse health impacts the freeway would certainly cause, the noise, property devaluation, risks from accidents involving hazardous materials, environmental justice, and much more.
