Crews from the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) Streets and Traffic Maintenance Division today began installing plastic flexible posts to delineate bicycle lanes from the travel lanes on St. Mary’s Road from Interstate 10 to Main Avenue. As part of this pilot project for Downtown Links Phase II, crews are installing 48 delineators, approximately 30 feet to 40 feet apart on both eastbound and westbound St. Mary’s Road. The work is expected to be complete by Wednesday, April 30, 2014.
The El Paso and Southwestern Greenway will be a 6-mile long multi-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians. The pathway will extend along a corridor that was once used by the railroad, from north of downtown Tucson, through the City of South Tucson to the Kino Sports Complex. The new path will be car-free and will connect to other regional bikeways and to many of the neighborhoods that the path travels through.
