The State Transportation Board formally approved an annual plan that outlines transportation projects over the next five years across Arizona.

The Arizona Department of Transportation’s five-year transportation facilities construction program is a work plan outlining highway, transit and aeronautic projects from 2013 to 2017.

ADOT’s Five-Year Program not only sets the direction for statewide highway and airport projects in the years ahead, but it also provides a clear picture of what each project costs and how and when it will be funded.

For 2013 through 2017, the total for the highway portion of the Five-Year Program is set at approximately $940 million per year to preserve, modernize and improve Arizona’s highways. That’s down from the $1.1 billion per year from the 2012-2016 Five-Year Program, due primarily to the decline in funding resulting from the weak economy.

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.

The Five-Year Program can be found at http://www.azdot.gov/MPD/priority_Programming/PDF/program.pdf.
