Tanque Verde Road, Wilmot Road, Pima Street Improvement Project Begins Next Week

A dual left turn lane on northbound Wilmot Road to westbound Pima Street will be created by widening the east side of Wilmot Road. Additionally, the two triangular islands on the west side of the intersection will be removed, and Pima Street will be reconfigured to accommodate the two lanes of traffic from the Wilmot Road dual left turn lanes. Eastbound Pima Street will be configured to have two designated left turn lanes and one right turn lane.

The roadway surface also will be improved for better rideability.

During the work, two lanes will remain open in each direction on Wilmot and Tanque Verde, but only one lane will be open in each direction on Pima.

Clear Contracting, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) will begin the project on Monday and will work weekdays, 7 a.m.-5 p.m., for approximately 60 days.
