ADOT Transportation Alternatives

The Transportation Alternatives is a new program resulting from the passing of the federal transportation bill in the summer of 2012 (MAP-21).

Under the federal MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century) legislation, the Transportation Alternatives (TA) projects replace the former Transportation Enhancement program.

There are nine eligible activities under the new TA program. One of the activities includes the construction of turnouts, overlooks and viewing areas.

ADOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are currently preparing guidance on the implementation of the new TA program. As the funding process and procedures become finalized, this page will be updated.
