Transportation Planning

Public Involvement Plan

ADOT welcomes and encourages robust public involvement that involves diverse groups of people statewide whose voices and viewpoints provide valuable insight during the decision-making process.

Adopted in February 2017, ADOT’s agency Public Involvement Plan provides guidance, techniques and examples for interacting with, informing and involving all members of the public throughout the transportation planning, design, construction and operation process.

This plan is intended for use by all ADOT staff, all consultants and local governments involved with ADOT-administered projects. It helps ensure that public involvement occurs in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act and other federal mandates for Environmental Justice and Limited-English Proficiency populations in Arizona, as well as the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA).

This plan will be reviewed and/or updated annually. To ensure accuracy, please be sure to refer to the most-recent version.  View the 2017 Public Involvement Plan.

Civil Rights

Persons that require a reasonable accommodation based on language or disability should contact ADOT’s Civil Rights Office at civilrightsoffice@azdot.gov. Requests should be made as early as possible to ensure the State has an opportunity to address the accommodation.
