Transportation improvement categories

Tucson is requesting a review of the types of project dishes that will be submitted for consideration in the next RTA. Instead of named corridor improvements specifying exactly where to build on a road or highway, the city wants space for traffic categories like pedestrian improvements, high capacity transit projects, and technology upgrades.

“Safety improvements, mobility, pedestrian and bicycle safety, all of these different categories are not currently being discussed,” said Romero. “I want to make sure we see this when we move into the future.”

While most projects on the 2006 ballot specified construction sites, They were divided into four categories: improving roads, adding safety elements, expanding transit services and increasing ecological and economic vitality.

Projects listed included $ 100 million for “Improving Safety and Capacity of Intersections” and $ 60 million for “Greenways, Paths, Bike Lanes and Sidewalks.”

Moghimi said there was room for categories of traffic initiative, but the specificity on the ballot was a result of the RTA bylaws.
