Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry is urging the community’s top business leaders to assist the county in pushing for a comprehensive funding plan to ensure adequate, well-maintained roads.

The American Society of Engineers recently found in its 2013 report card that 52 percent of roads throughout Arizona are in poor to middling condition, sticking motorists across the state with $887 million in repair and operating costs.

Huckelberry sent letters Friday to the Tucson Metro Chamber and seven other local chambers, as well as to the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association, the Southern Arizona Leadership Council, Metropolitan Pima Alliance and the Tucson Utility Contractors Association.
