What the heck are we down here in Tucson!!!! chopped liver!
so another interstate loop for the north phoenix ? I am confused what about us down here?
101 Million dollars for What! a conection form I-17 to west I-10? just can't belive this.... We in Tucson lack an across town freeway of any sort.
Traffic is Awful here!!! and we need that loop down here Damnit!
Well they need of the 101 million, 100 million to pay the right of way down through all the friggin pasture out there in no mans land....And figgure Nobama will provide the funding for all those skilled construction workers to have jobs...
And Bill you have my sympathies....I really don't see a need either as the 101 loop is just a few miles east of the current 303.. Just a way for golf carts to get from sun city to good year....
My sister and her family recently moved to Tucson, and you are correct: you need more freeways.
Anyone else remember the company in the late 90s that offered to build the SW portion of the loop 101? They were going to build it, run it as a toll road for enough time to recoup their expenese and some ROI, then GIVE IT ... FOR FREE ... to the state. And the state said ... drum roll please ... NO. Gotta love politicians!
Perhaps that's what Tucson needs. Anyone interested? We'll start our own company and do it. Goodness knows we could all use the income.
yeah 3200 people in Chino when I moved here. and about that many antelope roaming where Prescott Valley now is. I still remember when chino got the first black top road, it was on the front page of the news paper, everyone had to drive down it, it was the busiest road in town for a while.
I used to push cattle on a ranch where Prescott Valley is. I also remember when Phoenix was smaller than Flagstaff is now there was no loop anything just I-17 and I-10 long before there was even a cherry road overpass. Things sure change.
I can remember when I17 was divided through Phoenix and had orange trees growing in the center.
some where I have a picture of my family sitting on the hood of our '55 chevy watching the 737's land at skyharbor the pic was taken at the end of the runway at 40th st.
