Pinal County’s transportation committee has begun planning improvements, maintenance



The Pinal County Transportation Advisory Committee on Sept. 22 held the first of three meetings during which it reviews projects for the county’s Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program.

The five-year transportation program identifies potential funding and establishes a tentative schedule for countywide planning, construction and maintenance projects, according to a press release.

Appointed by the Pinal County Board of Supervisors, the Transportation Advisory Committee is a 10-member panel of members who meet annually to review, update and recommend projects for Pinal County’s Five-Year Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program.

Committee members are Chairman Kevin Louis, Vice-Chair Maxine Brown, Gordon Brown, Jim Fabris, David Garcia, Ted Hawkins, Giao Pham, Paul Prechel, Tom Snider and Harold Vangilder.

Additional meetings will take place Tuesday, Nov. 17, and Tuesday, Feb. 23. All meetings begin at 2:30 p.m. in the Ironwood Room of the 1891 Historic Courthouse in the Pinal County Administrative Complex, 135 N. Pinal St. in Florence.
