An update to the Flagstaff Regional Plan 2030 (FRP30), to bring its Road Network Illustration (Map 25) into compliance with Arizona Revised Statute requirements and to resolve inconsistencies between Map 25 and parts of the Flagstaff City Code. This update does not alter the intent of FRP30; it is only concerned with correcting errors, removing legal vulnerability, and improving the readability of FRP30.
The Transit Programs and Grants group within the Multi-Modal Planning Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation is a ten member team that is responsible for administering Federal Transit Administration grants and programs that enhance mobility options in the non-urban areas of the State of Arizona. Transit has five main areas of focus: Rural Transit, Coordinated Mobility, Planning, Safety and Grant Administration.
The Arizona Department of Transportation directs control of impacts to stormwater via a Statewide Stormwater Management Plan, and a statewide stormwater individual permit. The Maintenance and Facilities Best Management Practices Manual is one component of this Plan.
A statistical review of the motor vehicle crashes in the State of Arizona for each calendar year. The results are compiled from Arizona Traffic Accident Reports submitted to the Arizona Department of Transportation by state, county, city, tribal, and other law enforcement agencies. Motor Vehicle Crash Facts is an annual report published by the Traffic Engineering Group of the Arizona Department of Transportation. In order to provide the most current information, preliminary data is utilized when necessary. For this reason, previous or future reports may differ slightly and users are encouraged to refer to the latest issue of Motor Vehicle Crash Facts.
The purpose of the Program is to set forth the plan for developing projects and account for the spending funds for the next five years. All projects in the first two years of the program will be fully funded and ready to advertise within the year programmed or sooner as determined by the State Transportation Board. The last three years of the program will be illustrative in nature and be used to establish an implementation plan for projects moving through the various preparation phases needed prior to the construction of the project.
A key outcome of the Arizona Multimodal Freight Analysis Study is “a strategy for establishing freight analysis as an integral part of Arizona’s long-range planning process.” This study was directed to include the following as part of the strategy development:
• Broad themes to guide future freight planning.
• A description of how multimodal transportation networks impact the freight industry.
• Potential impacts of freight strategies on economic development in Arizona.
• A strategy for freight data collection, analysis, and planning.
• Measurable indicators describing the impact of freight traffic on the performance of Arizona’s multimodal freight transportation network.
The proposed action is the construction and operation of a new multilane freeway in the metropolitan Phoenix area extending approximately 22 to 24 miles from Interstate 10 west of Phoenix to Interstate 10 southeast of Phoenix. The facility would be the final extension of State Route 202L, an element of the Maricopa Association of Governments' adopted Regional Freeway and Highway System.
This report examined the effects of freeway development on land use and property values. A case study was prepared for the Superstition Freeway (US60) corridor in Mesa and Gilbert, Arizona. Among the findings were the following observations:
* New freeways provide substantial benefits to users in the form of travel time savings and reductions in costs associated with operating motor vehicles.
* Access benefits are transferred from highway users to non-users through changes in property values.
Freeway construction may have an adverse impact on some properties, but in the aggregate, property
values tend to increase with freeway development.
* Not all properties values are affected by freeways in the same way. Proximity to the freeway was observed to have a negative effect on the value of detached single-family homes in the US60 corridor, but to have a positive effect on multifamily residential developments (e.g. condominiums) and most commercial properties.
* The most important factor in determining negative impact on property values appears to be the level of traffic on any major roads in the proximate area, which implies that regional traffic growth is more significant than the presence of a freeway per se.
* Given the beneficial effects of freeway development on the value of certain types of properties, local
governments may benefit from appropriate planning and zoning decisions in the vicinity of a freeway
Seeking to identify how Arizona Department of Transportation could accomplish the greatest service improvements with the most efficient use of funds, ADOT engaged ARCADIS to perform a Crash Data Collection and Analysis study and examine the possibilities offered by technological innovations such as Electronic Data Entry, Relational Database Management Systems, and Geographic Information Systems. The study resulted in a comprehensive report with three components: an examination of best practices in use in the United States today, a use case and gap analysis examining ADOT's current data work, and a technical memorandum outlining how changes could be implemented.
Weather conditions in Arizona can find you driving in sunny, moderate climates of the low desert to ice and snow of the mountain regions in a couple of hours. The Arizona Department of Transportation wants to make sure that your travel throughout the state is safe and enjoyable, no matter what the climate. We offer the enclosed winter driving information to ensure that you save the slipping and sliding for the slopes and not the roadways.
