Tucson traffic: Sabino Kolb extension; Watermelon incident

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Late Wednesday night city council voted 5 to 1 proceed with an extension of Kold Road. The extension would go through Udall Park.

The project was approved by voters in 2006 during the RTA election. But it's been slow to come to fruition because nearby neighborhoods oppose the plan.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A driver lost his watermelons on a busy Tucson street.  It happened at Ajo and Alvernon Wednesday afternoon. Deputies on scene say the driver didn't even notice he'd lost his load.

Traffic was slow while the pounds of fruit were moved off the road.  No one was hurt as a result of the dumped watermelons.

Some drivers pulled over to help out and take some home with them.
