The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is conducting a study to develop a Circulation Plan for the East Cocopah Reservation in Yuma County. The East Reservation Circulation Plan will focus on developing a plan that compliments Cocopah Tribe’s Long Range Transportation Plan and provides multimodal recommendations for 5, 10 and 20 year planning periods.
The multimodal recommendations will consider bicycle, pedestrian, equestrian, public transportation and roadway projects. The Plan will also evaluate and make recommendations for improving access and vehicular connectivity with the existing local and regional transportation roadway facilities to the East Reservation.
The major product of the East Reservation Circulation Plan will be a final report that will recommend multimodal transportation improvement projects.
The East Reservation Circulation Plan for the Cocopah Tribe will be conducted according to a cooperative and meaningful planning process involving numerous project stakeholders that include public agency staff, elected officials, Tribal Elders and the general public. Actively engaging the public and project stakeholders is an important aspect of assuring the project’s final improvements are locally acceptable and successfully implemented. Throughout the study, information will be presented to and solicited from stakeholders through individual interviews, public meetings, and other means of communication.
