Arizona-Sonora Border Master Plan

Arizona-Sonora Border Master Plan Map

Completed 2013 - ADOT and Federal Highway Administration worked collaboratively with the state of Sonora, Mexico, the Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores, the Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes and several other local, state and federal agencies to develop an Arizona-Sonora Border Master Plan (BMP).

The need for an integrated transportation master plan to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of cross-border traffic prompted the need for this BMP. Arizona has a total of six ports of entry (POE) along its border with Mexico. In 2010, more than 23 million people were processed through these border crossings. At each POE, heavy congestion and security issues affect daily pedestrian, commercial and vehicular traffic traveling across the border.

The BMP study area extended along the entire Arizona-Sonora border, which incorporates a wide range of international jurisdictions, including federal, tribal, state, county and city governments on both sides of the border.
