Roads less traveled costing millions in lost economic development

Recently, Sun Corridor hosted a group of site selectors whose job is to guide decisions on identifying the best place for companies to locate/relocate. Unprompted, the members pointed out Tucson-area roads as a critical issue to address.

Not having a solution to the often-lamented state of our road system is costing $40 million annually in higher maintenance costs and countless millions more in lost economic development.

Arizona business leaders statewide must be empowered to control this issue because elected officials are not and have not. Contact the Pima County Board of Supervisor to demand consensus and action.
