Make a County Roadway Request through the Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program

The Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program (TIMP) is Pinal County's five-year transportation plan that identifies potential funding and establishes a tentative schedule for planning, construction, and major maintenance projects.  You are encouraged to submit a transportation project request.  The request will be evaluated and considered for inclusion in the TIMP.     
Transportation Project Request
A request can be submitted online.  Once a request is submitted it is forwarded to a Public Works area engineer to determine eligibility for the Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program (TIMP). The area engineer researches the average daily traffic, right-of-way, maintenance status, utility conflicts, and drainage issues of the proposed project.   If eligible, the proposed project is further evaluated to determine how it addresses such criteria as minimizing safety risk, reducing fugitive dust or aligning with the regional transportation plan.  Eligible and evaluated projects are generally added to the fifth year of the transportation plan.

Transportation Advisory Committee
Once a request has been added to the Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program (TIMP), the transportation plan is submitted to the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) for prioritization.  Public Works staff finalizes the draft TIMP based on the overall priority of the TAC.  The TAC is the recommending body to the Pinal County Board of Supervisors on transportation planning, construction, and maintenance projects within the county's jurisdictional boundaries. The TAC annually reviews, updates, and recommends a fiscally constrained, five-year transportation plan.

TAC Meetings
The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) consists of ten qualified electors of Pinal County, two members from each of Pinal County's five supervisory districts, to serve a four-year term.  TAC meetings are held each September, November, and February. Meetings begin at 2:30 p.m. and located in the Pinal County Administrative Complex (1891 Historic Courthouse),  Ironwood Room #101, 135 Pinal St., Florence, AZ 85132.  All notices and agendas are posted in compliance with Arizona's Open Meeting Law.

Five-Year Plan
As the final step, Public Works staff submits the recommended plan by the Transportation Advisory Committee to the Pinal County Board of Supervisors for final approval and inclusion in Pinal County's annual operating budget. Pinal County's five-year transportation plan identifies funding and establishes a schedule for completion of planning, construction, and major maintenance projects. Funding for the five-year transportation plan is provided by revenues from Pinal County's Transportation Excise Tax, the half-cent road tax, approved by voters in 2005.

Five-Year Plan
Once the proposed TIMP is finalized it then turns into a draft TIMP.  Once the draft is approved by the Board of Supervisors it then becomes the five year plan.  Pinal County's Five-Year Transportation Plan identifies funding and establishes a schedule for completion of planning, construction, and major maintenance projects. Funding for the Five-Year Transportation Plan is provided by revenues from Pinal County's Transportation Excise Tax, the half-cent road tax, approved by voters in 2005.

Transportation Advisory Committee
After the transportation project is determined to be eligible and has been evaluated, it will be added to a proposed TIMP which is then handed over to the Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) for prioritization. The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) is a recommending body to the Pinal County Board of Supervisors on transportation planning, construction, and maintenance projects within the county's jurisdictional boundaries. The TAC annually reviews, updates, and recommends a fiscally constrained, Five-Year Transportation Plan.
