September 28, 2015 – Our Accelerate Arizona team is on the road between August and November meeting with business leaders, community members, and elected officials to talk about local transportation needs. We are traveling the state from Flagstaff to Nogales to build a broad coalition of champions for a stronger statewide transportation system that meets Arizona’s growth and economic development needs.


While not always the most glamorous issue, infrastructure is critically important to facilitating healthy commerce in our state. Arizona’s manufacturers know firsthand the importance of sustaining a strong transportation system. It helps us move our goods, our people, and ultimately our economy.


Infrastructure needs are complex and vary by region, which is why we are spanning the state to hear what challenges exist in both rural and urban areas. The big question of course is how to identify the resources necessary to provide the long-term infrastructure network needed to grow Arizona’s economy.


Check out what we’ve learned so far on the roadshow by visiting our blog here. We conclude our Accelerate Arizona roadshow in November with a stop in Yuma. Stay tuned for more!
