MESA – The cities of Queen Creek and Mesa are studying ways to improve traffic flow around the bustling Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
The cost of the traffic study will be about $100,000 split between the two cities.
An earlier study performed by Mesa considered development and property and not traffic in the bustling corridor.
A spokesman for the airport says the study is necessary to get ahead of growth in what is an airport, educational, and business corridor.
Queen Creek officials say that besides being partners in the airport with Mesa and other surrounding municipalities, their part in the study was ensuring that drivers can easily travel between the town and Mesa.
