Starting tonight at 8 o'clock, the eastbound curb lane on Sixth Street and the northbound curb lane on Sixth Avenue will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Friday. As part of the City of Tucson Department of Transportation's Downtown Links Phase III project, Century Link is continuing work to relocate existing facilities within project limits. The closures will allow crews to conduct underground utility work in manholes.
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 neighborhoods to the north.
