But, that transformation didn’t happen by accident ... it took plenty of work and a whole lot of planning.
Planning is just as vital today as it was back then and at ADOT we’re always looking ahead.
Which brings us to the topic of today’s blog post ... the Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction Program.
The five-year program is created through collaboration that all begins with a long-range visioning process (kind of a “big-picture” look at the next 40 years). Next, a more realistic 20-year plan is developed and from there, the five-year program is created.
Three public hearings are scheduled.

After a thorough public hearing process, the State Transportation Board considers and adopts the five-year program.
A quick look at the 2013-2017 program
Of the total amount of funding estimated over the next five years, about half is designated for the Metro Phoenix region, in part because of the Valley’s half-cent sales tax for transportation projects, approved by voters in 2004.
Approximately $126 million is designated for aviation projects in the five-year program.
We want to hear from you!
You can get a complete look at the tentative five-year program now ... it's online and we welcome your feedback. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you'd rather give your feedback in person, or you want to talk with an ADOT representative face-to-face, public hearings will be conducted on March 16 in Tucson, April 20 in Flagstafff and May 18 in Phoenix (see above for details).
Members of the State Transportation Board will consider comments received by May 18 when they formally adopt the program in June.
