The City of Phoenix has approved the $260 million Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport cross-traffic lane that will span 2,000 feet to connect the north and south airfields.

The taxiway is intended to improve the flow of aircraft for airfield operations at the western end of the airport. Project design has begun and federal environmental approvals are expected in late summer. About US$194 million is expected to come from funds set aside from the infrastructure program, with the balance paid from passenger facility fees and airport revenues. The airport will receive funding from the City of Phoenix as a result of the bipartisan Infrastructure Act that was passed in 2021 by the US Congress.
