Active members of Protecting Arizona’s Resources and Children (PARC) in our Village of Ahwatukee and outlying residential areas aim to stop the South Mountain Freeway from being built on Pecos Road. Preventing the destruction of our community and South Mountain is the main goal of PARC, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) and the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) would have us believe that the Pecos alignment is the only alternative for the South Mountain Freeway (SMF). In our view, the Pecos alignment is not and has never been a viable alternative. Yet viable alternatives existed when MAG first proposed the SMF 25 years ago, and they still exist today.

While Chad Blostone did a nice job of staying with a more fact-based discussion on the South Mountain Freeway (SMF) in his June 17 column, "Loop 202 may be a good idea, but not for the reasons stated," his discussion on traffic congestion is too simplified, as he only considers Interstate 10 between Pecos and Baseline roads. A better understanding on this issue may lead readers to a different conclusion on the need for the SMF.
