TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) The Wrangler Ranches community told us yesterday that Pima Mine Road is a safety hazard. According to the county, the road is in ‘good condition.’
Today I spoke with District 3 Supervisor Sharon Bronson on the phone about her constituents’ concerns. Bronson says shes aware of the issues on the Pima County-maintained road, where numerous potholes and patchwork are visible.
Bronson tells me she disagrees with the countys assessment that the road’s condition is acceptable.
The nearby fire chief told me his crews have to slow down on Pima Mine Road even when responding to emergency calls.
Though it hasnt been repaved since the 90s, the county told us its not on the list of roads to be fixed soon. Spokespeople with the county reiterated it’s rated as in good condition.
Potholes filled by Pima County.
I wonder if any county employees have driven that road and can confirm its in good condition,” Bronson says. “Well be putting an item on the agenda some time in November.
We will follow up with Supervisor Bronson for more detail and follow along with the Board’s upcoming public meeting plan to address the road’s condition.
