ARIZONA

The Arizona Department of Transportation is working on its 25-year plan for state road and transportation improvement and is seeking public comments. The plan, called "What Moves You Arizona," is required under Arizona law to be updated every five years. ADOT is using a survey on its website, www.WhatMovesYouArizona.gov, to solicit public comments. Following adoption of the long-range plan and based on the investment strategies, yearly decisions will be made in creation of ADOT's Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction Program that will identify specific projects to be funded.
