An Ahwatukee-based nonprofit group took to the hiking trail Saturday to protest the development of the South Mountain Freeway.
The Sweetheart Hike, for the love of South Mountain, began at 8 a.m.
Pat Lawlis, president of Protecting Arizona's Resources and Children, said the group wanted to call attention to the harmful effects the proposed highway would have on the environment.
Among their concerns, the group cites the 13,500 trucks per day that the roadway would bring. The group estimates at least 1,000 of them would be vehicles carrying hazardous materials and are worried about the threat an accident might pose for Ahwatukee.
The Proposed Loop 202 Freeway, also known as the South Mountain Freeway, would run east and west along Pecos Road and then turn north between 55th and 63rd avenues, connecting with I-10 on each end.
The South Mountain Freeway is the last piece to complete the Loop 202 and Loop 101 freeway system necessary for high-quality regional mobility.
The project is currently in the development phase, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation's website.
