YUMA - The Arizona Department of Transportation will host a public open house Tuesday, Oct. 25, in Yuma to share the details of its plan to develop a network of electric vehicle fast charging stations along interstate highways in Arizona.

The meeting is one of several public meetings throughout the state to share details of the initial plan implementation and seek public input on which additional highways throughout the state should be added to the ADOT electric vehicle charging station network.

The meeting is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. at the City of Yuma City Council Chambers at 1 City Plaza.

The meeting will be held in an open house format without a formal presentation. A recorded presentation with study details will be shown throughout the meeting and study team members will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

The charging stations will be funded through the National Vehicle Infrastructure Program, or NEVI. The goal of the federal NEVI program is to encourage adoption of electric vehicles by improving the accessibility, reliability and equity of clean transportation options.
