Starting today you can give your input on projects the Arizona Department of Transportation is planning for 2018 to 2022.
Grants, federal funding and state funding has allowed for the acceleration of some planned projects. You can weigh in on these projects and give input on how much funding should go toward each.
It's called the Tentative Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction Program for 2018-2022 and some of the projects include:
• Widening Interstate 17 from Anthem to Sunset Point in fiscal years 2021 and 2022.
• Two Interstate 10 widening projects in Pinal County (State Route 87 to Picacho Peak and Earley Road to Interstate 8), now accelerated to fiscal year 2018 due -- in part -- to a $54 million federal FASTLANE grant.
• The first phase of a project to improve State Route 189 in Nogales between the Mariposa Port of Entry and Interstate 19, now planned for fiscal year 2019 thanks to a $25 million state budget appropriation aimed at accelerating the project.
• Two major widening projects along US 93 in fiscal years 2018 and 2020 that will bring ADOT closer to its goal of completing a four-lane divided highway from Wickenburg to Interstate 40, laying the groundwork for the future Interstate 11.
