As part of the Campbell Avenue Streetscape Enhancement Project, crews from Pima Paving, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), are in the process of installing underground irrigation lines across Campbell Avenue between Grant Road and Glenn Street. The irrigation work is scheduled to be finished by this Friday.
For the next three nights, travel on Campbell Avenue between Grant Road and Glenn Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. The Campbell Avenue Streetscape Enhancement Project began Aug. 17. Funded with money from the Regional Transportation Authority and a 2005 Transportation Enhancement grant from the Federal Highway Administration, the $670,000 project includes several raised and landscaped center lane median islands along Campbell Avenue between Grant Road and Fort Lowell Road. Other enhancements include sidewalk connections, concrete pavers, colored stamped crosswalks, raised planters, and new landscaping and irrigation.
Crews are working Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., with occasional night work. The project is scheduled to be finished in late November.
