PHOENIX — Arizona’s transportation authorities are asking the public to share their thoughts on an electric vehicle charging plan.

The Arizona Department of Transportation invited people to provide input on its Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan in a virtual public meeting on July 10.

This plan would add these nine state highway segments to a network of fast-charging stations ADOT plans to create:

  • US 60: Wickenburg to Phoenix
  • US 60: Phoenix to Globe
  • US 60: Show Low to New Mexico
  • US 93: Wickenburg to I-40
  • US 95: Quartzsite to San Luis
  • US 160: US 89 to Four Corners
  • State Route 68: US 93 to Bullhead City
  • SR 80: Bisbee to Douglas
  • SR 90: I-10 to Bisbee

These charging stations would be built with 80% federal funding and a 20% private match, according to ADOT’s announcement. No state funding will be used to build this network of charging stations.

The federal funds would come from the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program.
