I noticed that DPS has finally included a new district map on their website that includes Metro South (District 18). I am surprised to see that Metro South covers a lot of area East and South of Apache Junction that was District 6 in the past. US 60 all the way east past Apache Junction to Hwy 177, and Hwy 79 from US 60 south to Florence is now part of Metro South!



For those of you in the far east valley, or around Florence and Superior, you may want to make sure you are monitoring Phoenix Metro South 460.275 100.0 PL (formerly CI 1) or you might be missing some stuff you used to hear on District 6.



I am also surprised to see that they have Metro Central covering the upcoming 202 South Mountain freeway west of 24th street.

The District 6 / Metro South border is right at Florence. The map appears to have Florence in Metro South (460.275). The map also has "Florence" printed in the Metro South section. Certainly Hwy 79 north of Florence is now in Metro South.

District 6 (460.025) is Casa Grande. This covers South of Florence on Hwy 79 and West of Florence on Hwy 287.

District 8 (460.425) is Tucson. This does not begin until farther south around I-10 at Marana or Hwy 79 at the Oracle Junction at Hwy 77.

I thought that the county lines are the district boundaries that's what I've always thought when I drive around the state to make sure I'm on the right channels. Also anyone noticed that some guys like to use State in car to car mode for traffic radar and stuff ... I got a close call hit last week around Williams with 2 guys doing that.

SR-51 appears to be Metro Central.

I was surprised to see Metro West went so far past Wickenburg, putting 77, and stretches of 89 and 93 under their jurisdiction. I figured District 12 started at the Yavapai County line.
