On May 9, 2013, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer approved the MAG planning area expansion into Pinal County. The new region included the Town of Florence, City of Maricopa, parts of Pinal County, the rest of the City of Apache Junction, the Gila River Indian Community, and the Town of Queen Creek. The addition of this area brought a sub-allocation of federal Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP-MAG) funds. These are allotted statewide based on population.

Projects within this specific area qualify for funding in the Pinal County Arterial Bridge program. Such projects are roadways (including parkways), principal and minor arterials, and major collectors. Eligible activities include capacity expansion, rehabilitation of existing roadway and bridge infrastructure, and intersection and drainage improvements.
