Construction on the new AC Hotel by Marriott in Downtown Tucson at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Broadway Boulevard will cause vehicular restrictions, but pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained. Starting today, and lasting through approximately May 2017, the left lane of Broadway will be closed between Sixth Avenue and Fifth Avenue from 6 a.m.-4 p.m. daily.
During the closure, all vehicles in the left lane of Broadway will be required to turn left onto northbound Sixth Avenue. Through traffic should use the right lane of Broadway approaching Sixth Avenue.
Traffic will return to normal during non-work hours. However, barriers necessary to protect the work zone adjacent to the hotel site will remain between the left and right lanes of traffic, so lane changes will not be possible during those hours on Broadway between Sixth Avenue and Fifth Avenue.
