Development of a new long-term regional transportation plan continues as the Regional Transportation Authority works with a citizens’ advisory committee to recommend a new 20-year draft plan. The new plan would fund $2.34 billion in improvements to the transportation network across Pima County.
The plan process involves evaluation of proposed roadway corridor improvements, transit expansions, safety enhancements, and other transportation elements RTA-member jurisdictions submitted for inclusion in the draft plan.
In 2006, voters approved the current 20-year RTA plan and a half-cent sales tax to fund it. To date, more than $1.6 billion of the $2.1 billion plan has been spent to deliver nearly 1,000 projects. Both the plan and tax are effective through June 2026 unless a new plan and tax extension are approved by voters at a future election.
