Florence council members demand action on ‘complete mess’ on Hunt Hwy

By Mark Cowling | Pinal Central

FLORENCE — Town Council members expressed frustration Monday with a traffic snafu on Hunt Highway and demanded accountability from the contractor and town staff.

Councilman John Anderson called it “a major problem for our citizens” and added, “we need to get it fixed tonight. We don’t want to hear excuses, the contractor needs to figure out a way.”

The town awarded a $1.2 million contract in April to Cactus Asphalt to rebuild almost a mile of Hunt Highway north of Anthem. The contract included a temporary bypass road to keep traffic flowing, but that path buckled and crumbled Friday, making it impassable.

Pinal County’s emergency notification system relayed a message Tuesday afternoon that southbound Hunt Highway will be closed south of Oasis Lane throughout the project. Southbound drivers will be detoured to Arizona Farms Road and Felix Road.
