The Arizona Department of Transportation plans a public meeting in Black Canyon City the evening of April 3 to provide an update on ideas under consideration for adding traffic capacity on part of Interstate 17.

ADOT says it plans to build additional lanes between Anthem on the northern outskirts of metro Phoenix and Black Canyon City and that it is considering whether to build a new pair of reversible "flex lanes" between Black Canyon City and Sunset Point.

ADOT says the reversible lanes could be used in the busiest direction of travel or in the event of a closure.

The April 3 meeting is set for 6 p.m. at Canon Elementary School. The meeting will include presentations by ADOT about the improvement options.
