On Sunday, March 16, 2014, crews from Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will begin milling (removing) asphalt and repaving Houghton Road from Interstate 10 to Dawn Road, near the Pima County Fairgrounds.
To minimize the impact on the traveling public, crews will be working from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. until the project is complete, which is on Friday, March 21, 2014.
Since sections within the construction zone feature only two travel lanes, flaggers will be present to assist with directing travel through the area. The traveling public can expect delays when driving in the work area. Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work area. The schedule is subject to change due to equipment malfunction or inclement weather.
This project is the part of the $100 million, five-year street bond program - Road Recovery. The Road Recovery program is funded by voter-approved bonds. All proceeds from the bonds will be used to restore and resurface City streets through Fiscal Year 2018. A Bond Oversight Commission composed of citizen volunteers is working to ensure that all bond funds are expended solely for the purpose of repairing city streets.
