***NEW*** On Thursday, March 26, 2015, the Broadway Citizens Task Force came to a unanimous consensus decision to support a 6-Lane Including Transit Alignment. They support presenting their recommended alignment at a public Open House on April 23, and taking it and their design recommendations to the Mayor and Council for consideration and adoption in May.
The CTF-recommended 6-Lanes Including Transit Alignment supported by the Task Force will be a hybrid of the two maps presented at their meeting:

On February 20, 2015, the City of Tucson is releasing a staff-recommended 6-Lane Including Transit Refined Alignment Map and report documenting refinements made to the map since October 23, 2014 - the date that the last Broadway Citizens Task Force (CTF) meeting was held.
The Broadway CTF began review of this refined map and related report at their meeting on March 19, 2015, and will meet again on March 26, 2015 to continue the discussion. They are asked to support moving the alignment forward to a public informational Open House (April, 2015) and then to Mayor and Council for adoption (May, 2015). Adoption of the alignment must occur before the acquisition process can be funded and related activities started.
The project has, and will continue, to receive comments via the email@example.com email address, comment cards, or phone calls.
On December 11, 2014, the Regional Transportation Authority Board approved $1.5 million in funding for the City of Tucson to proceed with the roadway corridor design to widen Broadway Boulevard, from Euclid Avenue to Country Club Road, from four travel lanes to six lanes, with bus pullouts, bike lanes and sidewalks. (Click here for the full press release) The RTA Board's approval upholds the October 9, 2014 vote by the Mayor and Council to move the 6-Lane Including Transit Alignment into further design and approving $1M of City project funding to support it.

The Broadway Citizens Task Force's alignment recommendation is reflected in a Majority and Minority Report. Ten (10) of thirteen (13) Citizens Task Force members supported a 6-Lane Including Transit Alignment. Additionally, the members support improving transit in the design work still to be completed and developing recommendations to the Mayor and Council regarding issues highlighted through the design process (such as parking and more).
