    The Transportation Advisory Committee’s list of neighborhood roads selected for repair covers the unincorporated areas of Pima County, City of Tucson, Sahuarita, Oro Valley, Marana and South Tucson. In total, the two-year plan the Board of Supervisors approved Dec. 12 will repair more than 429 miles of roadway in 518 neighborhoods across all jurisdictions. 

    The funding for year one, which comes from a 25-cent property tax enacted as part of the Fiscal Year 2017-18 budget, will be distributed as follows:
    • District 1 - $4.75 million – 25 percent
    • District 2 - $3.12 million – 17 percent
    • District 3 - $3.8 million – 20 percent
    • District 4 - $3.7 million – 20 percent
    • District 5 - $3.4 million – 18 percent
    Beginning in the spring 2018, year one repairs will be performed on more than 212 miles of roads in 254 neighborhoods.  Subject to funding approval as part of the Fiscal Year 2018-19 budget, year two road repairs will occur in the fall 2018.

    The approved plan for repairing roads in the unincorporated area focused on poor rated roads (PASER 5) prioritized based on average daily traffic volume. PASER refers to the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating system that ranks road condition on a 1 to 10 scale, the lower numbers representing a worse condition. 

    The cities and towns provided their lists of neighborhood road repair priorities based on their own established criteria and multi-year repair schedules.
