ADOT adopts 2050 Long-Range Transportation Plan

Emphasizes repairing and preserving existing highway infrastructure

PHOENIX – Following approval by the State Transportation Board, the Arizona Department of Transportation has adopted the 2050 Long-Range Transportation Plan providing a blueprint and vision for ADOT’s priorities over the next 25 years. 

The plan, which is not project-specific, sets transportation investment priorities for ADOT based on anticipated future revenues and system needs.

The State Transportation Board approved the update at its Friday, Oct. 20, meeting in Yuma.

A broad cross-section of Arizonans, nearly 10,000 in all, provided input on the plan. Their input made it clear that ADOT’s top priorities should be fixing roads and preserving and maintaining existing infrastructure, along with highway projects that address growth and improve highways in rural areas. 

The plan, which is updated every five years, is available for review at ADOT2050plan.com
