TUBA CITY, Ariz. - Tuba City To'Nanees'Dizi' Chapter recently made a generous road improvement donation to the Tuba City Unified School District. The chapter gave the district several tons of gravel for two areas where school buses travel.

Gravel was delivered to both the dirt road area near the Tuba City Junior High and the back of Tuba City hospital housing as well as the dirt bus route near the old Airport Road in west Tuba City.

Both of these dirt roads get heavy traffic. During the winter months the roads get especially muddy making student pick up messy and, at times, almost impossible for the buses to get in and out of heavy snow or mud without delaying student arrival to school. The road conditions also create expensive maintenance costs for the school buses themselves.

The Tuba City District Transportation Department was very happy to get the gravel donation. Officials said it makes daily travel to the seven district schools that much smoother and safer for their student passengers.
