TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Work on Pima County's new emergency communications network has entered a more visible phase as crews are taking down a radio tower that is a familiar landmark in the Catalina Foothills.

According to a spokesman with the City of Tucson, the tower, which is the middle of three radio towers on city-owned land along North Swan Road north of East River Road, is being modified to accommodate new antennas that will be used in the Pima County Wireless Integrated Network.

Although the city also owns the towers, Pima County is doing the work to strengthen the tower.
