Through May 10th , the Draft 2019 Five-Year Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program for Budget Years 2018-2019 through 2022-2023 is available for public review and comment by visiting the county’s website here.
Updated annually, the transportation program identifies potential funding and establishes a tentative schedule for countywide planning, construction, and maintenance projects. After the public comment period, the program will be submitted to the Board of Supervisors for final approval in June.
By unanimous vote, the Transportation Advisory Committee approved the draft program in February. The committee is a 10-member panel that is appointed by the Board of Supervisors to annually review, update, and recommend the program of transportation projects. The committee’s recommendation is a culmination of a six month planning cycle that included three public meetings and the evaluation of 17 transportation project requests.
The committee recommended 10 new transportation projects for Budget Year 2022-2023 that addressed the program goals of improving safety, increasing paved mileage, and minimizing dust within the county’s transportation system.
Transportation Advisory Committee meetings for the next planning cycle are scheduled as follows:
- Tuesday, September 24, 2019
- Tuesday, November 26, 2019
- Tuesday, February 25, 2020
The meetings begin at 2:30 PM and are held at the Pinal County Administrative Complex, 135 Pinal Street in Florence.
