REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION STUDY PUBLIC MEETING TO BE HELD IN SHOW LOW

A regional transportation plan study process for the White Mountains area administered by the Arizona Department of Transportation continues with a public meeting to present study findings Thursday, Feb. 7, in Show Low.

Those attending the meeting, to be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Show Low City Hall, 180 N. Ninth St., can review and comment on potential transportation improvement projects identified in the region. Public input will inform selection of projects that will be documented in the study’s final report.

ADOT is administering a transportation study for southern Navajo and Apache counties that will evaluate the current transportation infrastructure in the region and make project recommendations over the next 20 years. These projects may involve roads, bike lanes, transit routes, pedestrian trails and anything else that would improve mobility for residents and visitors.

The public also can view and provide comments on the Southern Navajo and Apache County Work Plan by visiting the project webpage at azdot.gov/SNAC. Click the “comment form” link to provide feedback.

The southern Navajo and Apache County region began this regional transportation plan update due to population growth and economic development that are placing a burden on the existing infrastructure.

The study region includes Snowflake, Taylor, Show Low, Pinetop-Lakeside and unincorporated areas of southern Navajo and Apache counties, including the communities of Concho and Vernon.
