    Tucson’s Department of Transportation director presented the city’s road repair priorities to the Pima County Transportation Oversight Committee meeting October 10. 

    roadsDaryl Cole spoke through a brief power point describing how the city’s Bond Advisory Committee prioritized the $7.2 million the city will receive for local road repairs as part of the 25-cent primary property tax supervisors approved with the Fiscal Year 2018 budget. 

    Cole said the city chose to prioritize repairs of the local roads in the worst condition. The Bond Oversight Committee, which advises the City Council on the progress of the $100 million 2012 road repair bonds, chose about 10 neighborhoods throughout the city to direct repairs. 

    Cole said the total costs for the city to bring all local roads up to excellent condition would run more than $650 million.

    The Transportation Advisory Committee also voted to approve the list of road repair priorities the Town of Marana submitted at the Sept. 26 meeting. 

    The Committee also discussed a draft letter they plan to send to the Board of Supervisors requesting longer term solutions to the region’s roadway conditions.

    District 4 Supervisor Steve Christy also attended the meeting, and spoke to the Committee at the call to the audience about his proposal for a half-cent, Countywide sales tax to generate revenue for road repairs. He intends to present the plan to the Board of Supervisors. 

    The next Transportation Advisory Committee meeting is scheduled for Oct. 24.
