Arizona has experienced unprecedented growth throughout the State during the past decade. This rapid growth has created challenges for the transportation system statewide.
In accordance with the policy of the State Transportation Board, ADOT is developing a statewide Access Management Program, to preserve the functional integrity of the State Highway System.
Access management has proven to preserve the function, efficiency and safety of state highways by the careful planning and control of the location and design of access points along the State Highways.
This program includes the development of an access management classification system for state highways, design guidelines, a comprehensive manual, and a web-based application to guide the uniform application of access management throughout the State.
Included within the Program will be the establishment of Administrative Rules. Once ADOT begins the formal rulemaking process, the public and stakeholders will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed rules.
