Transportation is a key asset!
Casa Grande is at the center of Arizona’s transportation system. Casa Grande sits at the nexus of two key Interstates, I-8 and I-10. Interstate 8 provides through access to the west to San Diego, California and bypasses the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas. Interstate 10 provides through access to Los Angeles, California. I-10 continues east towards El Paso, Texas and also provides regional connections to Mexico via I-19. In addition to these national and international roadway connections, the Union Pacific Railroad passes through the City and is an active line that connects the major ports and freight transfer points in Los Angeles and El Paso. Union Pacific is currently in the process of adding an additional rail line, thereby increasing capacity and enhancing the availability for local access.
Plans are underway to connect Casa Grande with a direct interstate to Las Vegas, Nevada. Read about the proposed Interstate 11 corridor here.
