Commissioner Lonnie C. Talbert along with State Representative William Rehm and Fire Division Chief Brian Kadle on June 21 cut the ribbon on the new access road to Paseo del Norte that will provide a significant reduction in travel time for fire personnel who respond to fires and other emergencies.

Previously, fire engines had to travel a little out of the way to get to Paseo del Norte.
