MARICOPA — The chronic headache of State Route 347 may get some relief after the Senate Appropriations Committee voted to allocate $35 million to improvements to 347, mainly for an overpass at Riggs Road.
Legislators met Tuesday to discuss a variety of infrastructure and transportation bills including House Bill 2068, which would provide $35 million for an overpass at Riggs Road and SR347, a notoriously dangerous area.
Rep. Bret Roberts, R-Maricopa, sponsor of the bill, spoke at the meeting in favor of HB2068, citing these dangerous driving conditions.
