Portion of Toole Avenue Restricted for the Next Couple of Weeks

Starting tonight, Toole Avenue from Fifth Avenue to Sixth Avenue will be reduced to one lane between the hours of 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday nights through Thursday nights. On Friday and Saturday nights, two-way travel will be allowed on that section of Toole.

Crews from Day's Excavating, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will install underground electrical conduit and landscape sleeving in the area.

The work is part of the Pennington Street realignment at Toole Avenue. This project reconstructs and realigns Pennington Street from Sixth Avenue to Toole, allowing for a safer, more perpendicular intersection of Pennington with Toole. Improvements include new signing, pavement markings, and landscape on Toole, as well as traffic signal upgrades at the Pennington/Toole intersection.
