IMPACT OF THE ENERGY SITUATION ON THE ARIZONA HIGHWAY PROGRAM

Some of the many facets and variables inherent in the current energy situation are examined, and efforts by the Arizona Highway Department to react to this situation are reviewed. Potential revenue reductions that can affect the Highway Department, county and city programs are discussed as well as inflationary costs in construction time and material. All these various factors must now be considered in system planning, development planning, and project planning. For urban areas, comprehensive transportation planning carried on cooperatively between state and local authorities is advocated. It should be based on strong leadership and must include operational factors and elements of the public and private sectors related to transportation. The importance of extensive maintenance is emphasized. The planning function must be expanded to evaluate the effectivity of expenditures. Comments are made on specific countermeasures (e.g. carpooling) initiated in Arizona.
