***NEW*** 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 will review this refined map and related report for their next meeting on March 19, 2015, at which time they will be 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 public is encouraged to provide formal comments to the Citizens Task Force pertaining to the refined alignment and refinement report between February 20, 2015-March 11, 2015 via:

Staff-Recommended 6-Lane Including Transit Refined Alignment Report
PART 1 (dated Feb. 20, 2015)
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. (Click here for the press release).
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).
The next Broadway Citizens Task Force meeting will be:
Thursday, March 19, 2015
Our Saviour's Lutheran Church (1200 N. Campbell, Activity Building)
