ADOT seeks input in White Mountains region transportation study

May 23, 2018

PHOENIX – Whether you live in the Show Low area or visit the region to escape the heat, the Arizona Department of Transportation along with Show Low and other White Mountains communities want to know how you get around.

ADOT is administering a transportation study for southern Navajo and Apache counties that will evaluate the current transportation infrastructure in the region and make project recommendations over the next 20 years. These projects may involve roads, bike lanes, transit routes, pedestrian trails or anything that will improve mobility within the region for residents and visitors.

Area residents and those who own summer homes or visit the area frequently are encouraged to provide their input by completing an online survey at surveymonkey.com/r/SNAC_Plan.

Representatives of the transportation study team will also have a booth at the upcoming Show Low Days festival June 1-3 with surveys people can fill out.

All comments must be submitted by Saturday, June 16.

The southern Navajo and Apache County region began this regional transportation plan update due to the surge in population growth and economic development that is placing a huge burden on the existing infrastructure.

The study region includes Snowflake, Taylor, Show Low, Pinetop-Lakeside and unincorporated areas of southern Navajo and Apache counties, including the communities of Concho and Vernon.
