The CTF-recommended 6-Lanes Including Transit Alignment supported by the Task Force at the March 26 meeting reflects a hybrid of the two maps presented at their meeting:
These maps were preceeded by a map released on February 20, 2015, titled the staff-recommended 6-Lane Including Transit Refined Alignment Map. The Broadway CTF began review of this refined map and related report at their meeting on March 19, 2015, and revised versions on March 26, 2015 that resulted in the current alignment map.
The project has, and will continue, to receive comments via the firstname.lastname@example.org 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).
