South Mountain Freeway vote soon, Gila River tribe says


A decision about whether to allow the alignment of the planned South Mountain Freeway to be moved south of Ahwatukee Foothills to the Gila River Indian Reservation could be made by tribal officials in January. Alia Maisonet, spokeswoman for the Gila River Indian Tribal Council, said that between now and next month, community members will attend meetings at which they can voice views and ask questions about a possible extension of Loop 202 on reservation land.
