Mohave County supervisor Buster Johnson would like to inform the public of Arizona’s Department of Transportation’s (ADOT) online survey tool. This 5 minute survey will be available to the public for the next 45 days and will be used by ADOT to help draft their Long-Range Transportation Plan.
Johnson said the survey will help ADOT get a clear picture of what areas regarding transportation are important to citizens and just how much investment and funding should be allocated to each area.
“This survey will allow Mohave County residents a chance to be heard without having to drive to Phoenix,” Johnson said. “A reliable transportation system is vital to Arizona’s economic future. In order for Arizona to keep pace with the rest of the nation, it is important that we start planning now for the needs of future transportation.”
ADOT is required by federal legislation and state statue to update their long-rang transportation plan every five years and to cover a 25-year planning horizon. The long-rang transportation plan called What Moves You Arizona (WMYA) will be updated to cover the years 2016-2040.
Charla Glendening, ADOT’s MPD Planning Program Manager, said the five minute survey will guide participants through six investment choices for transportation infrastructure: preservation, expansion, safety, technology, accessibility, and maintenance and operations. Glendening said once a participant ranks these priorities, they’ll be guided to a screen providing a budget and allowing them to determine how much they’d allocate for each.
Johnson said survey feedback will be crucial in planning the state’s future transportation needs.
“Infrastructure across our State is in dire need of repair, but there is not enough funding available to meet all the needs of the State,” Johnson said.
