Grant Road Phase 3/4 Project Start

Published on May 13, 2024

The Grant Road Improvement Project from Alvernon Way to Swan Road (Sparkman Boulevard to Venice Place) is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 20, 2024. Granite Construction, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility, will begin this project on the west end of the limits, at Sparkman Boulevard and proceed east.

To minimize the impact to the traveling public, this first phase of work, which includes relocating underground utilities, will take place at night, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Thursday. Lane restrictions will be in place during this work.

At completion, this improvement project will include six travel lanes, landscaped medians, buffered bike lanes, sidewalks, transit stop upgrades, indirect left turns and protected intersection improvements at Alvernon Way and Grant Road. A 96-inch diameter underground storm drain system will also be constructed throughout the project limits. This project is expected to be complete by the end of 2026.

The Regional Transportation Authority, a political subdivision of the state and independently governed, has invested more than $1.4 billion in transportation projects and services to improve mobility, safety, economic vitality and quality of life in the region. The RTA collects a half-cent excise (sales) tax from its special taxing district within Pima County to fund its 20-year regional transportation plan. The plan and tax were approved by voters in May 2006. The Grant Road Phase 3&4 Improvement Project is part of the RTA plan and is managed by the City of Tucson. For more information, visit
