The Multimodal Planning Division (MPD) of the Arizona Department of Transportation has been tasked with identifying corridors throughout the state where improvements to the transportation infrastructure supports the greatest potential commercial and economic benefits. These "Key Commerce Corridors" represent a strategic statewide approach to leverage infrastructure improvements to enhance Arizona's competitive economic position. This document presents the basis for the identification and evaluation of the Key Commerce Corridors.
"The Hopi Senom Transit Program has been operating for the past twenty-two years to provide public transportation on the Hopi Reservation and local border towns to the general public and employees of local governmental and private sector agencies. The service area includes the Hopi and Navajo reservation areas and Flagstaff. Boundaries and major communities of the area served is Keams Canyon, Tuba City, Flagstaff, Leupp and Kykotsmovi. Currently, the Hopi Senom Transit Program operates two fixed routes providing service five days a week. Service is provided on schedule between Kykotsmovi and Moencopi, and Kykotsmovi and Keams Canyon. Vanpool transportation for Tribe employees is provided Monday through Thursday between Flagstaff and Kykotsmovi. This vanpool style service is open to the general public, but is used primarily by Tribe employees. The Public Transportation Section of the Multimodal Planning Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation is charged, among other roles, with administering transit programs including the Section 5311 Rural Transit Program ... The Five-Year Implementation Plan will provide a roadmap for transit services on the Hopi Reservation. In addition, a matrix of tasks and responsibilities will provide a framework for the Section 5311 Program to maintain management oversight of the rural transportation programs. This framework will become a key part of the evaluation process for future funding cycles"--Pages 1-2
"This guidelines and procedures manual is intended to be used by the staff of the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) and Arizona's regional transportation planning agencies, which include Councils of Governments (COGs), Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), and Transportation Management Areas (TMAs). In addition to outlining the guidelines and procedures for regional transportation planning functions, this manual provides an overview of the programs administered by the ADOT Multimodal Planning Division (MPD)."--Introduction, Page 1-1
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) completed a comprehensive customer satisfaction assessment in July 2009. ADOT commissioned the assessment to acquire statistically valid data from residents and community leaders to help it identify short-term and long-term transportation priorities. The survey found that state residents feel: Safe on the state's highways; ADOT keeps the roads clean; ADOT keeps the landscaping well maintained; Satisfied with the Motor Vehicle Division; ADOT is moving in the right direction; Dissatisfied with condition of highway shoulders (should be improved); Dissatisfied with nighttime visibility of highway striping; Dissatisfied with the frequency of public transit where they live; and Dissatisfied with traffic flow on highways during rush hour. Both residents and community leaders said the transportation issues with the highest priorities were: Repairing and maintaining existing highways; Enhancing highway safety; and Relieving congestion on highways.
A landmark assessment of infrastructure needs in Arizona was produced by the L. William Seidman Research Institute in May 2008 for the Arizona Investment Council (AIC): "Infrastructure Needs and Funding Alternatives for Arizona: 2008-2032", that addressed infrastructure needs in four categories: energy, telecommunications, transportation, and water and wastewater. The information from the AIC report is a major input to the report that follows. Other types of infrastructure — most notably education, health care, and public safety — also are analyzed here to provide a more complete picture of infrastructure needs in Arizona. The goals of this report are to place Arizona’s infrastructure needs into national and historical contexts, to identify the changing conditions in infrastructure provision that make building Arizona’s infrastructure in the future a more problematic proposition than in the past, and to provide projections of the possible costs of providing infrastructure in Arizona over the next quarter century.
The condition of Arizona’s infrastructure has a direct impact on economic productivity and quality of life. As economic competition expands domestically and globally, and as the knowledge economy evolves, the importance of a strong infrastructure increases. Education, in particular, is of growing importance. Arizona’s infrastructure challenges will require commitment and creativity to meet the needs and potential of 10 million people and to ensure a positive future for the state.
