TUCSON –The first roadway improvement projects in relation to Proposition 101 Tucson Delivers Better Streets Program began Monday.
In 2017, Tucson voters approved Prop 101, “a five-year, half-cent transaction privilege sales tax to fund street improvement and public safety investments, with 60 percent of the tax revenues apportioned to public safety and 40 percent to street improvements.”
Voter approved Proposition 101 Tucson Delivers Better Streets Program kicks off today with work on Starr Pass Blvd. from Lost Starr Drive to Mission Rd. Interchange. More info here: https://t.co/76IDp0Kqg2 #ThankYouTucsonVoters pic.twitter.com/Z0yevtgmwb
