The Arizona Department of Transportation has opened the public comment period for its 2015-2019 Tentative Five-Year Transportation Facilities Construction program.

The department will hold a series of board meetings and public hearings within the next few months, including at 9 a.m. on April 11 at the Town of Marana Council Chambers, 11555 W. Civic Center Drive.

The program is updated every year and serves as a blueprint that details where, when and how regional, state and federal funding will be spent for projects during the next five years.

This includes highways, bridges, transit and aviation projects.

The program focuses on preserving the existing state highway system while prioritizing and moving other projects forward.

The plan is available for review and comment at www.azdot.gov/fiveyearprogram.

The public can also provide feedback by sending an email to fiveyearprogram@azdot.gov
