Once you submit your project request, it is forwarded to the Public Works area engineer to determine eligibility for the Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program (TIMP). The area engineer researches data such as average daily traffic, right-of-way, maintenance status, utility conflicts, and drainage issues to determine if the project is eligible for the TIMP. If it is determined eligible, the area engineer then evaluates how the proposed project addresses numerous criteria such as safety, the regional transportation plan, and environmental requirements.
Eligible projects are added to the fifth year of the TIMP and the proposed TIMP is then submitted to the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) for prioritization in November. TAC members assign priority for the proposed projects and the draft TIMP is finalized and submitted to the TAC for action at the regular meeting in February.
Public Works staff submits the draft TIMP to the Board of Supervisors for action in March and inclusion in Pinal County's annual operating budget.
Please note that project requests submitted after September 30th of each year will be considered in the following planning cycle.
