The Arizona Statewide Transportation Improvement Program identifies statewide priorities for transportation projects. It is a compilation of projects utilizing various federal funding programs and includes highway projects on the cities, counties, and state highway systems, as well as projects in the National Parks, US Forest Service, and Indian Reservation Roads. This is a four-year project list compiled in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, Council of Governments, and the Metropolitan Planning Organizations. Projects are selected for inclusion in the STIP based on adopted procedures and criteria.
The Federal Transit Administration Section 5311 Rural Public Transportation Program provides program funds for capital, operating, and administrative assistance to local public bodies, nonprofit organizations, and operators of public transportation services in non-urbanized areas. The Public Transportation Division of the Arizona Department of Transportation provides financial and technical assistance to transit agencies throughout the state to enhance the access of people in non-urbanized areas to health care, shopping, education, employment, public services and recreation.
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 City of Winslow North–South Transportation Plan is a multimodal plan, addressing improvements to the vehicular road network within and around the City of Winslow in addition to transit, bicycling, and pedestrian facilities. This study is being funded by the Arizona Department of Transportation Multimodal Planning Division’s Planning Assistance for Rural Areas (PARA) program. The PARA program is funded through the Federal Highway Administration’s State Planning and Research program to non-metropolitan communities for the purpose of conducting transportation planning studies. PARA funds may be applied to address a broad range of planning issues related to road and non-motorized transportation modes.
This report presents the financial position of the Department on a cash basis as of June 30. This report includes all funds used to record the financial activity of the Department.

There are a number of different ways to measure the performance of government programs. Among the types of measures most commonly used in federal, state and local governments are inputs, outputs, outcomes, efficiencies, and quality measures. Each is designed to answer a different question and must often be used in combination to analyze agency, program or subprogram results.
Transportation is critical to Arizona’s economic success. To have a strong economy, our state must have quality highways, public transit, railroads, airports and ports of entry to get people to work and to move products and provide services. By building transportation infrastructure, we can actually strengthen the economy, create jobs and support business development. However, a significant gap exists between projected revenues and transportation investments necessary to support a vibrant economy. Our priorities for the future will focus our limited resources on preserving and modernizing what we already have to protect the taxpayer investment in the existing transportation system.
The Department was established by the state legislature in July 1974 by combining the former Arizona Highway Department (originally established in 1927) and the Department of Aeronautics (originally established in 1962). The Department is not legally separate from the State of Arizona's primary government. The Department's mission is to provide a safe, efficient, cost-effective transportation system. The vision is the standard of excellence for transportation systems and services. This report includes all funds used to record the financial activity of the Department.
This pamphlet describes CyberPort as multinational in its approach, considering the impacts of cross-border traffic at the local, state, and regional levels. The goal of CyberPort in Arizona is to increase the capacity of Nogales, San Luis and Douglas to serve as safe, secure and efficient gateways between the United States and Mexico. Nogales, as Arizona’s primary commercial port-of-entry, is naturally positioned to serve as the port of choice for western U.S.-Mexico trade.
The Nogales CyberPort Project began in the Spring of 2002 amid dramatic changes to the safety and security of U.S. borders. Throughout the following year, extraordinary change was experienced in policy and practice regarding the treatment of the border at the local, state and federal levels. While the movement toward a more efficient and effective border crossing environment has been underway in Arizona and the U.S. for a number of years, there is perhaps a no more appropriate time to undertake the effort to define and implement a CyberPort than right now.
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.
