PHOENIX — There are just a few days left to offer comment on the Arizona Department of Transportation’s five-year plan.

ADOT’s five-year plan calls for $570,000 to be spent in Graham County in 2021 and $7.7 million in 2023. Projects include:

● $400,000 is proposed to rehabilitate a bridge on U.S. Highway 70 at mile marker 298, on the San Carlos Apache reservation. $200,000 will be spent in 20201 and $200,000 in 2023.

● $7.37 million for rehabilitation of nine miles of U.S. Highway 191, between State Route 266 and SR 366. $370,000 for design will be spent in 2021, with $7 million set for construction in 2023.

● $500,000 in 2023 for maintenance of Pitchfork Creek Bridge on SR 266.

In addition to roadway construction, ADOT is proposing $400,000 in taxiway and hanger improvements at Safford Regional Airport. The city’s match for the four projects would be 10 percent, or $40,000.

There are no projects proposed in Greenlee County over the five-year period.

Statewide, ADOT is proposing spending more than $594 million in 2021 and nearly $2.7 billion over the full five years.

Most of that money is planned to be spent in Maricopa County, with $192.8 million spent in 2021 and $2.6 billion over the five years. Pima County is scheduled to see$118 million in 20201 and $296.6 million over five years.
