PINAL COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu will be having a press conference at 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

He will be talking about a high number of injury and fatal accidents happening along Ironwood Road, which is one of the routes that many commuters take to get to Phoenix. 

San Tan Valley is about an hour and a half drive from Tucson, it is a community east of I-10.

Babeu is expected to call for updates to Ironwood Road, because he believes it was not made to handle so much traffic. The problem, according to his office, is Pinal County does not get enough federal funding to fix its roads.
