As part of the City of Tucson Department of Transportation's Downtown Links Phase III project, crews tomorrow will repave sections of Sixth Street and Sixth Avenue. During the repaving work, the curb lane of northbound Sixth Avenue will be closed to traffic, as will the curb lane of eastbound Sixth Street. The work will take place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Century Link is continuing work to relocate its existing facilities located within project limits.
Downtown Links Phase III – Church Avenue to Broadway – is funded by the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), the City of Tucson and Pima County. The multimodal plan is nearly halfway finished and includes roadway, safety, transit, and environmental improvements. Improvements include improved access and connections for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists, linking Barraza-Aviation Parkway, Interstate 10, and downtown with the neighborhoods to the north.
