The RTA status report for March 2021 shows 887 projects have been completed.

Of those, 17 major roadway corridor construction projects have been completed, and nine additional corridors are partially completed. The roadway corridors make up the largest expense in the RTA plan.

Some corridors have seen intersection improvements to help with the flow of regional transportation, 190 such projects have been completed out of 200 promised.

Smaller, but still impactful projects also have continued throughout the Tucson metropolitan area in the past 15 years since the RTA began, including projects with a multimodal focus:

  •  75 pedestrian crossings of 80 promised
  • 136 bus pullouts of 200 promised
  • 174 miles of new sidewalk, 250 promised
  • 356 miles of new bike lane of 550 promised

The RTA Board has committed to funding all projects in the voter-approved plan, and the RTA Citizens Advisory Committee is working to draft a proposed new slate of projects for voters to consider. The current plan expires in 2026.
