Letter: Proposed freeway would be bad for Ahwatukee

There have been many articles on the proposed Loop 202, pros and cons.

I worked and commuted for over 12 years to the west side as I worked in the trucking industry. I definitely do not want the truck by-pass, which it really is, to become a reality. I do not believe Ahwatukee residents realize how many trucks will go through this neighborhood and how it will affect them.

When Interstate 80, Interstate 70, Interstate 40 are closed or impending weather, those vehicles drop to the southern route, which is Interstate 10.

Those who do not live close to Pecos Road will still receive the effects of the exhaust up to 3 miles away, as well as noise. Both Desert Vista High School and Kyrene de los Lagos Elementary School will be affected.

The cost of the project is prohibitive while crime will also increase in Ahwatukee. For those who live in Ahwatukee, don’t wait and wonder how this came to be. Get involved.
