Milling (removing asphalt) work starts tomorrow to improve the pavement conditions on westbound 22nd Street from Alvernon Way to Country Club Road. Crews from Sunland Asphalt, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will work from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and Monday to remove the old asphalt.
There will be an uneven surface between the median island lane and center lane on westbound 22nd Street. For safety reasons, barricades will be in place between the two lanes to prevent motorists from changing lanes.
Paving work will take place between next Tuesday and Thursday. During the work, at least one lane of travel will be maintained on westbound 22nd Street.
The project is part of the voter-approved, $100 million, five-year Road Recovery street bond program.
