It’s your time to let ADOT know how to plan for the next 5 years

There are two basic kinds of questions ADOT employees get asked all the time: “When are you doing something to improve this highway?” And, “How can I have a say in what projects should be next?”

It turns out that now is the perfect time to get answers to both questions.

That’s because this is the time of year ADOT updates its latest five-year program, which is the blueprint for upcoming projects on Arizona’s state highway system. And an important part of the annual process is sharing the program with the public so you can see what’s planned -- and help us by providing your feedback before that blueprint gets approved.

Please take some time to check out the 2024-2028 Tentative Five-Year Transportation Construction Program at You’ll see projects are all over the map, in terms of geography, size and type. Some involve maintaining or improving pavement. Others fix or replace bridges. And a few involve widening highways and interchanges.

You’ll also see estimated costs and timelines. In total, the $7.7 billion program includes $2.6 billion for preserving bridges and pavement, while $669 million is set aside for widening highways or improving interchanges.

We outlined the program’s highlights and most high-profile projects in this recent news release, but you’ll likely want to check out the many other projects that may be closer to home by reviewing the full plan at That link also lets you know the various ways you can submit comments, which we’re accepting through June 1.

The State Transportation Board is expected to take action on the program at its June 16 meeting.

ADOT values your input on this program to preserve and improve Arizona’s transportation system.
