    DOT-RTA-Next
    The Pima County Department of Transportation (PCDOT) and the Pima County Transportation Advisory Committee (PCTAC) seek community input on anticipated transportation needs within unincorporated Pima County over the next 20 years. Sharing your knowledge and opinions can help us plan for all types of transportation projects and programs to better serve all county residents and help the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) generate its plan.

    We want to hear from you. Come share your ideas or suggestions for new and improved roadways, intersection and safety improvements, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian improvements, and roadway maintenance at the regularly scheduled PCTAC meetings in February, March, and April during a special call to the audience. County residents may also use our feedback form on PCDOTs website: Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Next.

    The next scheduled PCTAC meeting will be on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at noon at Abrams Public Health Center, 3950 S. Country Club Road. For more info about PCTAC: http://bit.ly/2Qo8ZL7

    The Pima County Transportation Department oversees the design, reconstruction, maintenance and operations of nearly 2,200 miles of roadways and infrastructure throughout unincorporated Pima County. This includes hundreds of bridges and drainage structures, street lights, traffic signs, traffic signals, bicycle facilities and public art throughout the County’s transportation system.
     
    The Regional Transportation Authority is a state-established political subdivision within Pima County that collects a half-cent excise tax from the RTAs special taxing district. The tax funds the RTAs 20-year regional transportation plan, which voters in the district approved in May 2006 along with the excise tax. To date, the RTA has invested over $1 billion in the region to deliver transportation projects and services that improve our region’s mobility, safety, economic vitality and quality of life. The Valencia Road project, Wade to Ajo is part of the RTA plan and is managed by Pima County. Please visit www.RTAmobility.com for more information.
