ADOT publishes Final Long-Range Transportation Plan

The Arizona Department of Transportation is pleased to present the final 2040 long-range plan, outlining strategies for meeting the state’s highway and bridge needs over the next 25 years.

ADOT’s Final Long-Range Transportation Plan, which is required to be updated every five years, is available for review. Download the final document or review the plan on-line.

ADOT has spent the past two years developing this Long-Range Transportation Plan, which looks through 2040. The project team conducted stakeholder outreach, gathered extensive public comment across the state and worked through months of technical analysis.

During the 25-year period of this plan, about $923 million in annual highway capital funding will be available from state and federal sources. On average, the Phoenix and Tucson regions are expected to receive $512 million annually. Of that, $223 million comes from voter-approved regional programs in those two metropolitan areas dedicated largely to highway expansion. ADOT’s Recommended Investment Choice calls for all of the remaining annual average of $411 million to go toward preserving and modernizing highways in Greater Arizona.

The recommendation outlined in the Final Long-Range Transportation Plan is in line with public and stakeholder outreach, in which most participants listed preservation, safety and modernization projects as their highest priorities for Greater Arizona.

The Long-Range Transportation Plan was finalized in early 2018.
