Join us in opposing any I-11 highway bypass route through the Avra Valley west of the Tucson Mountains, because the environmental, historic, archeological, and urban sprawl impacts could not be adequately mitigated.
Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry is actively pushing for an Interstate 11 highway bypass through the Avra Valley, despite a Pima County Board of Supervisors 2007 resolution opposing a highway bypass.
Additionally, as part of his I-11 strategy, Huckelberry has requested $90 million in Pima County Bond money for the construction of another new highway, called Interstate 510, that would link the proposed I-11 bypass with I-10 on Tucson’s south side. We urge the Pima County Bond Committee, as well as the Board of Supervisors, to reject this request because many other worthwhile projects would be imperiled. If this $90 million proposal is included in the November 2014 Pima County Bond election that goes before voters, we will campaign and vote against it.
