Transportation Plan


The City of Mesa’s Transportation Department is currently updating the existing City of Mesa 2025 Transportation Plan, which was adopted by the Mesa City Council on June 24, 2002. 

The existing plan is over ten years old and is in need of an update to ensure a fully functional, multimodal transportation system that serves the mobility needs of local citizens, enhances efficient goods movement, and that also meets the long-range planning needs of the City. 

The new Transportation Plan Update, referred to as the My Mesa 2040 Transportation Plan, will include a public participation process, the completion of an in-depth inventory and analysis, the development of a project Travel Demand Model, the completion of community transportation planning elements, the analysis and development of special transportation areas, completion of the plan document for review, the development of an implementation strategy, and final preparation of the plan. 

The Transportation Plan Update will utilize the existing framework of the City of Mesa 2025 Transportation Plan and will include the following elements: Complete Streets, Roadway, Transit, Pedestrian, Bicycle, Aviation, Travel Demand Management and Intelligent Transportation Systems.


2040 Transportation Plan - Draft


Public Participation Process

The Mesa Transportation Department will coordinate public participation activities with the Mesa Planning Division, which is presently involved in updating the City of Mesa General Plan to the planning horizon year of 2040.  Transportation Planning will coordinate with the Planning Division on as many public outreach opportunities as possible, which includes:

  • Neighborhood Outreach Meetings in each of the City Council Districts,
  • Pancake Breakfast Events in each of the City Council Districts,
  • Celebrate Mesa and other city events, and
  • Special Planning Division-sponsored East and West Mesa General Plan Update Meetings.

Throughout the course of the planning process, the Transportation Department will rely on oversight and advisory input from the Mesa Transportation Advisory Board. 


Completion Date

The Transportation Plan Update will be completed and ready for City Council adoption in October 2014.
