Ah, my favorite, transportation. Today we will take a look at the transit network of the Remington area. As you can see in the map, a surprisingly dense freeway network exists in and around Remington.

  • The main north-south freeway, Highway 25, runs from the southern coastline of the region to Los Alamos, an industrial area east of Queensland.
  • Highway 10, the East Tollway, currently goes from downtown Remington to the edge of suburban developments. It is currently the only toll road in the area, and will likely see an extension in the near future.
  • Highway 17, the Northampton Freeway, runs from Highway 360 in Queensland to the front range of the Carpathian Mountains in Northampton. It primarily serves the large suburb of Arlington Heights.
  • Highway 12 runs from Suburban Boulevard in Glendale over a bridge across the Queens River and through the western suburbs. There are proposals to extend it eastward to connect with Highway 25.
  • Loop 360 is the region's outer beltway.
  • Highway 397 forms a quarter-bypass around downtown Remington, connecting industrial Midfield with Remington and Lancaster.

There is a grid of arterials through most of the region, with the exception of Queensland, Arlington Heights, and parts of Tempe. Some are designated as state highways. The most heavily congested is SH-83, which runs through the core of the urban areas. Proposals have been made to upgrade the corridor to a freeway, but most would rather see a public transport alternative instead, such as a monorail or elevated rail. More details on this are to come.
