My wife and I are from out of state and we are considering moving to the Tucson area. We just returned from a visit there and I am curious to know what those in-the-know can tell me about the area southwest of Tucson. Specifically, I am referring to the area west of I-19 and south of Tucson Mountain Park. Google Maps lists the neighborhoods in this area as Valencia West, Drexel Heights, Tucson Estates.

I know this is a broad area. The impression that we got is that it is a quiet (but growing) residential area containing quite a few older rural homes along with a number of newer subdivisions. I know it has a little bit of a commute in to Tucson. We really liked it. A lot of nice mountain views and the homes are affordable. Is there anything more about this area that I should know as we considering moving there? Something that I wouldn't know from just exploring it for a day or two?

Are you retirement age or younger? I think of Tucson Estates as a mostly senior community but I could be wrong.

That area may be changing if some people in the state and county have their way: they are wanting to run an I-10 bypass through the Avra Valley to hook up with I-19 south of the city. It will be called I-11 and has already begun in points north of Tucson. It's supposed to run from Mexico to Las Vegas ultimately.

Here's a google search turning up a plethora of media articles about it; they include maps.


In addition, more timely and possibly impinging on the subject is this that appeared in the Arizona Daily Star this morning:

Weigh in on proposed Sonoran Corridor routes that would link I-10, I-19

People interested in reviewing and providing feedback regarding three recommended routes for the Sonoran Corridor can do so this Thursday.

The possible highway would connect Interstate 10 and Interstate 19 south of the Tucson International Airport. (Continued)
