Miami workshop scheduled for ADOT’s Long-Range Transportation Plan

Workshop replaces Globe meeting postponed in February

PHOENIX – Community members, businesses and stakeholders are invited to provide their input and ideas to shape the long-range vision for Arizona’s transportation system during a workshop in Miami next week.

The workshop, scheduled for April 13 from 9 to 11 a.m., replaces a February workshop originally scheduled in Globe but postponed due to construction along US 60. It will be held at Bullion Plaza Gym at 150 N. Plaza Drive in Miami.

The meeting is part of a series of statewide workshops hosted by ADOT. These “Think Ahead About Transportation” workshops are the foundation to begin updating ADOT’s Long-Range Transportation Plan, also known as What Moves You Arizona, which is updated every five years. The Long-Range Plan looks 25 years down the road to determine the best mix of investment to preserve, modernize and expand the state transportation system with the resources available.

While ADOT’s Long-Range Transportation Plan is not project-specific, it identifies priorities based on current and projected transportation funding over the next 25 years. Because limited revenues will not meet all current and future transportation needs, it’s up to the public, policymakers and communities to tell ADOT what’s important to them.
