Adopt a Crosswalk Sign

Perhaps you've seen new signs at some crosswalks that remind motorists to yield to pedestrians. The signs can be placed at marked crosswalks on roadways with speed limits of 25 mph or less. Most of the signs are in the downtown area, but they can be placed on qualifying roadways throughout Tucson by special request.

Do you know of a crosswalk that would benefit from a sign? Individuals, businesses, or organizations can "adopt" a crosswalk sign. By adopting the sign, the adopter agrees to pay $272.50 to have the sign built and placed at the crosswalk of their choice.

Interactive Maps Provide Valuable Information About Tucson

ZoomTucson is an interactive mapping site that allows citizens to find government information and services, such as political representatives, trash and recycling collection schedules, zoning, and school boundaries. ZoomTucson's clean and simple map interface allows users to search by an address or click on a location to display a wealth of information. It's also good for people interested in moving to Tucson.

Pothole Repairs This Week on Starr Pass Boulevard

Crews from the City of Tucson Department of Transportation’s Streets and Traffic Maintenance Division are repairing potholes on Starr Pass Boulevard from La Cholla Boulevard to Mission Road.

The work began this morning and will continue through this Friday. Work hours will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. Because sections of the roadway are one lane in each direction, flaggers will direct travel through the work zone. The speed limit in the area will be reduced to 15 miles per hour.

Tucson Police Mentoring Program a Success

The Tucson Police Department's (TPD) mentoring program began about two years ago in the Operations Division Downtown to connect experienced officers with newer ones to share experiences and insights about the job.

They attend meetings of the Citizen Police Advisory Review Board (CPARB) and the Pedestrian Advisory Committee, as well as spending time with detectives, specialty units, and the force commander. The meetings are based on individual interests and career goals.
