FLORENCE — The Pinal County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution Wednesday approving a Regional Transportation Plan and Transportation Excise Tax and calling for a Nov. 7 election date.

The plan and half-cent transportation excise tax are intended to allocate about $640 million in transportation funding over the next two decades to establish better transportation within the county.

A resolution adopted by the Pinal RTA Board of Directors states that this is a two-decade multimodal plan, outlining construction dates for projects included in the proposal.
