AJO WAY - COUNTRY CLUB ROAD TO 14TH AVENUE
Tucson, AZ – The Pima Community College football program and Tucson Electric Power have teamed up to select a student/athlete every week to be named the TEP AZTEC Power Player of the Week.
Freshman quarterback Rasheem Parks was this week’s selection after he played the final two-and-a-half quarters of Saturday’s game. He went 17 for 31 with 205 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions in Pima’s 36-20 loss against Mesa Community College at the Kino Sports Complex (FC Tucson Stadium).
Beginning tonight, crews from Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co., under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will begin to improve the roadway conditions on Ajo Way from 14th Avenue to Bernard Drive and on Ajo Way from the Kino off-ramp to Country Club Road. The contract also calls for resurfacing Country Club Road 200 feet north and 200 feet south of Ajo Way.
The pavement improvement project is part of the $100 million, five-year street bond program - Road Recovery. The Road Recovery program is funded by voter-approved bonds.
