The Transportation Needs Study is a planning effort undertaken cooperatively by Yuma County and the Multimodal Planning Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation. It has been funded and supported through the Planning Assistance for Rural Areas program of ADOT. The Study addresses the needs of multiple jurisdictions, as well as the needs of neighborhoods within these jurisdictions. It encompasses a mix of uses within developed and undeveloped zoning areas of the Mesa Del Sol and Foothills areas.
The primary goals of the study are to define the current circulation system, evaluate its performance, forecast future needs, and prepare a plan for fulfilling the identified needs. The study is prepared for the Town of Sahuarita, pursuant to an intergovernmental agreement with the Arizona Department of Transportation through the auspices of ADOT's small area transportation studies program. The Town of Sahuarita General Plan was adopted in November 1996 to guide development within the town and its sphere of influence. The circulation element contained in the General Plan identifies specific objectives for consideration in the planning and development process.
The City of Prescott was awarded funding to conduct this corridor study through the Planning Assistance for Rural Areas program administered by the Arizona Department of Transportation. The City of Prescott, with support from ADOT, has worked with other local agencies in the region to conduct this study to evaluate and recommend a corridor alignment for the Sundog Connector located in Yavapai County, Arizona. The western corridor terminus is located in the City of Prescott and the eastern terminus is located in the Town of Prescott Valley. The corridor study area is defined as the area between State Route (SR) 69 and Prescott Lakes Parkway. The focus of the study was to document the current and future conditions through a review of all relevant planning studies, land use designation, development plans, needs assessments, and stakeholder input. Using the documented purpose and need for the corridor, the study team has identified, evaluated and recommended a preferred corridor for the planned roadway including alignment, typical sections, recommended right-of-way, and utilities and drainage recommendations.
The Planning Assistance for Rural Areas program is sponsored by the Arizona Department of Transportation Multimodal Planning Division, and provides federal funds for the purpose of conducting transportation planning studies. Lake Havasu City first participated in another ADOT program for local governments, the Small Area Transportation Study program, in 1991. Under the SATS program the Lake Havasu City government successfully developed a citywide roadway plan, and then took part in the SATS program to update the plan in 1997 and 2005. The PARA program is flexible and allows for studies of neighborhoods or sub-areas within jurisdictions. The subarea program provision made it possible for the City to apply for and receive PARA funding for the North Havasu Study Area.
The Graham County, Safford, Thatcher, Pima Small Area Transportation Study was initiated by Graham County, in conjunction with the Arizona Department of Transportation, to develop a countywide, long-range multimodal transportation plan for this growing rural Arizona community. The project sponsors selected the PB Americas team to conduct this study under the direction of a Technical Advisory Committee, which included representatives from Graham County, City of Safford, Town of Thatcher, Town of Pima, Southeastern Arizona Governments Organization, and ADOT.
In 1992, Graham County conducted a transportation study for the Gila Valley Region. This study prepared a long-range transportation plan and a transportation improvement program. Many of the improvements have been completed. The purpose of this study is to update the 1992 transportation plan and to address the current issues within the area.
The Flagstaff Regional Plan 2030: Place Matters (Regional Plan) updated the Flagstaff Area Regional Land Use and Transportation Plan (2001). The vision and goals for the Regional Plan are directed toward creating a cohesive and sustainable land use and development pattern resulting in a contextsensitive and efficient transportation system that supports economic development, multimodal transportation, and improved safety and accessibility.
The Arizona Department of Transportation assisted the Town of Clarkdale to develop the Clarkdale Transportation Study through the Planning Assistance for Rural Areas program. The PARA program assists counties, cities, towns, and tribal communities to address a broad range of multimodal transportation planning issues including roadway and non-motorized modes of travel. Existing multimodal needs and deficiencies, or those projected as a result of future growth and development, were identified through the analysis of existing transportation conditions, stakeholder input, and review of existing plans and studies.
In October 2009, the San Carlos Apache Tribe completed an update to their Long-Range Transportation Plan. One of the recommendations from the LRTP was for the Tribe to conduct an extensive transit feasibility study to evaluate the existing services and identify improvement opportunities. In addition, the Tribe is seeking support in preparing the required documentation to assist in the development of Federal and State transit funding grants. The San Carlos Apache Transit Services applied for, and received funding from the ADOT Multimodal Planning Division to conduct the Transit Feasibility Study. This Five-year Implementation Plan represents the second phase of the Study.
In October 2009, the San Carlos Apache Tribe completed an update to their Long-Range Transportation Plan. One of the recommendations from the LRTP was for the Tribe to conduct an extensive transit feasibility study to evaluate the existing services and identify improvement opportunities. The San Carlos Apache Transit Services applied for, and received Planning Assistance for Rural Areas program funding from the Arizona Department of Transportation Multimodal Planning Division to conduct the Transit Feasibility Study. The study consists of two separate phases: The first phase focuses on the feasibility of expanding and enhancing the San Carlos Apache Transit Services operation, and the second phase is the development of a five-year plan for implementing the recommended enhancements and service expansion. This is the Final Report for the first phase of the study.
