Long-range planning begun in 1960 for an international regional airport in Arizona has progressed to the point where about 80 square miles of land have been designated as the airport site. Part of the ongoing program is planning for a multimodal and high speed transportation corridor serving the airport and linking Phoenix and Tucson. Besides providing for multimodal ground transportation systems, the corridor will also accommodate sewer, gas, and other pipelines as well as power and communication facilities. The concept provides space for an environmental buffer zone. Some considerations for developing a long-range plan for a project of this magnitude are discussed. The importance of region-wide cooperation between agencies involved is emphasized.
