Tuesday is your chance to weigh in on the future of Valley freeways.

The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) is holding the first of several transportation meetings for public input on ways to improve the Interstate 10 and Interstate 17 corridors.

Eric Anderson, MAG transportation director, said they’ll discuss everything from traffic flow to the future of driverless cars, the first of which are hitting Arizona roads this month. 

Technology, on that alone, he said, is on a fast track.

“We have the Googles, and the Apples of the world, and we have the Ubers and the Lyfts, and all those other transportation services companies," Anderson said. "So, there’s billions of dollars of new research.”

Tuesday’s public meeting is in downtown Phoenix. Two more will take place Wednesday and next Tuesday. Visit MAG's website for times and locations.
