S Circuit Court of Appeals denied a request to stop construction on the South Mountain Freeway while it considers an appeal. This is the fourth time a federal court has ruled in favor of the project, and it brings us one step closer to full-scale construction starting next year.<br><br>The South Mountain Freeway is going to be a major driver of economic development Valleywide and will relieve major congestion in one of our most crowded stretches of highway. So today's ruling is the latest good news for a project that the Valley sorely needs."<br></td></tr></tbody></table><br></div>11/22/2016 7:00:00 AMDavid Urbinato602495-5405
