State Long-Range Transportation Plan


Planning Arizona’s transportation future requires setting priorities and making sometimes-difficult choices given limited resources.

As the Arizona Department of Transportation updates its Long-Range Transportation Plan, a blueprint looking from now through 2040, an interactive online survey allows you to help shape this vision by walking through scenarios similar to those facing planners and policymakers. 

The survey, developed by ADOT and MetroQuest, is available until Nov. 11 at It gives you the opportunity to rank six transportation priorities: preservation, expansion, safety, technology, accessibility, and maintenance and operations. You’ll get a budget and determine how much of it you’d allocate for each. Then you’ll decide tradeoff scenarios that further define your priorities.

It takes just a few minutes and can be completed on a personal computer, smartphone or tablet. A Spanish-language version of the survey is also available via the link.

ADOT’s Long-Range Transportation Plan is updated every five years. While it isn’t project-specific, it identifies investment priorities based on current and projected transportation funding over the next 25 years.

It’s up to the public, policymakers and communities to tell ADOT what’s important to them throughout the long-range planning process and to prioritize projects and funding.

The final version of the plan is expected to be complete in early 2017.
