Last week’s welcome rain brought on some unwelcome visitors: potholes.
Some new problem areas have made driving a little more difficult for Tucsonans as several new potholes have appeared.
Potholes have popped up on Pima Farms Road between Camino de Oeste and Cerius Stravenue. Several cars have bottomed out into a pothole along this roadway, raising safety concerns. Potholes have also been reported along Grant Road, between Stone and 1st. This is a heavy construction area and some drivers have popped a tire or damaged their vehicles after hitting one of these holes in the road.
While the City of Tucson and Pima County have been dealing with potholes for years, some residents are not satisfied with the road conditions. Many drivers wish there was more funding to tackle rough roads and improve conditions for motorists.
The City of Tucson and Pima County both have designated special crews to fix potholes, and they are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying problem areas. Please send in any complaints to Pima County or to the City of Tucson.
