Transportation Planning

Regionally Significant Project List 

Northern Arizona Council of Governments (NACOG) is conducting a regional planning process to develop a list of transportation infrastructure and planning projects to submit to the Rural Transportation Advocacy Council (RTAC) in August 2021.RTAC will submit the complete list of Greater Arizona projects, totaling $40 million state-wide, for introduction to the state legislators as a single piece of legislation. NACOG will create two project lists during this process. Both lists will be vetted by the Supplemental Funding Planning Committee and the Transportation Technical Subcommittee (TSC) prior to submission to Regional Council and RTAC.

2022 – 2026 Transportation Investment Plan (TIP)

The TIP is a multi-year capital investment program. TIP-funded improvements may include state highways, local roadways, public transit, intercity rail, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and intermodal facilities, and plans/studies. The TIP requires regional collaboration to ensure resources are shared, maximized, and maintained for the benefit of greater northern Arizona.

Regional Traffic Count Program 

With funding from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), NACOG is conducting a three-year Regional Traffic Count Program by collecting data on federally classified roadways and local roads. This program helps to fill in the traffic count data gaps in our region, supports state and local planning decisions, and helps to inform and enhance local grant applications.

Regional Strategic Transportation Safety Plan

The RSTSP is a joint venture between 25 local governments in four counties seeking to reduce the risk of death and serious injury on roadways.  The plan will be developed by Burgess & Niple in coordination with NACOG, Central Yavapai MPO, and Flagstaff MPO. Schedule: December 2016 – May 2018.

Arizona Department of Transportation

ADOT’s planning efforts include developing a Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction Program. The 5-year programs serve as a blueprint for future projects and designate the quantity of local, state, and federal funding allocated for projects.  The program focuses on multimodal forms of transportation, with funding generated by the users of transportation services.

The program begins with a long-range visioning process, moves into a more realistic 20-year plan, and finally yields each Five-Year Program. The program is developed by working closely with local planning organizations and community leaders to identify ready-to-construct or design projects. A potential project goes through several levels of review to become part of the tentative program before being presented to the State Transportation Board for consideration and approval. A public comment period and public hearings are also part of the process. The board considers all public comments before voting to approve the Five-Year Program.
