School Gets Speed Tables from Ward 5

Sierra Middle School, 5801 S. Del Moral, now has speed tables to help with safety concerns about children crossing the street to get to school. Ward 5 Council Member Richard Fimbres and his staff worked with City Manager Michael Ortega, Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) Director Daryl Cole, and TDOT employee Jesse Soto to get speed deterrents installed at the school.

Funding came from savings from the Ward 5 Council Office budget from the last fiscal year. The speed tables were in place Aug. 1, but the Sunnyside Unified School District held the official dedication yesterday.
