The State Highway System includes 6,801 route miles of roadway and of this about 88% of the system's roadways are situated within rural areas with the remainder in urban areas. The System also includes 1,324 miles or 20% that traverse Native Nation/Tribal lands. In addition, there are 20 airports maintained and operated by the Native Nation/Tribal Governments.
This report is intended to provide useful information about the condition of the State Highway System in a format that is readily accessible to transportation professionals and non-professionals. This report was produced by the Planning Team of the Transportation Planning Division.
The principal purpose of the Gila County Transportation Study is to identify the most critical transportation infrastructure needs within Gila County and recommend a program of improvement projects to address these needs. Transportation needs were grouped into the following elements: roadway, safety, pavement management, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and transportation finance.

The Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Phase II Plan focuses on implementing some of the main recommendations of the Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Phase I Plan. This includes the development of documents for statewide distribution, the development of plans for a number of future programs, and significant improvements to the Bicycle and Pedestrian Program website.
With the advent of multi-modal transportation planning, and given that most of the major metropolitan areas in Arizona have implemented bicycle and pedestrian plans, it is now desirable that ADOT develop a bicycle and pedestrian plan that encompasses all of Arizona. The major intent of the Statewide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan is to provide a long-term plan for a system of shared roadways and bicycle and pedestrian facilities for the ADOT State Highway System. This includes the definition of the roles of the State and local government in the continual development of the bicycle and pedestrian transportation system in Arizona. ...
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.
The purpose of the 2012 ADOT Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Update is to update the 2003 plan and address the most critical bicycle and pedestrian transportation planning needs on the State Highway System, responding to the significant growth in Arizona that has occurred over the last decade. The Plan establishes a vision for bicycling and walking in Arizona.
The Arizona Department of Transportation Map Book samples the numerous uses made of ADOT’s base centerline file, commonly known as Arizona Transportation Information System (ATIS) Roads. ATIS Roads is a Geographic Information System (GIS) coverage, or layer, of Arizona roads and streets. The GIS community in the Arizona state government is a diverse group with a strong commitment to cooperative data sharing. Without this cooperative effort, many of the maps presented here could not have been produced.
The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.
The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog and Library One Search. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.
Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
