PHOENIX, Ariz. — The major interstate that connects Phoenix with Flagstaff will be expanded.

The Arizona Department of Transportation has won a $90,000,000 federal grant to improve Interstate 17.

Construction will add lanes along 23 miles of I-17.

Work will start by 2021 and be finished in 2023.

ADOT says these improvements will ease congestion on the very busy interstate.
