Arizona’s roads and bridges face more work than the state can afford, according to a recent report by the state’s DOT. Close to $90 billion will be required over the next 13 years, and the 25-year revenue forecast is only $26 billion. As is the case across the country, declines in gas consumption has resulted in less tax collection.
As a result, the DOT will be refocusing on highway maintenance instead of highway expansion.
