Tucson Completes New Kino Boulevard Gateway Project

A new intersection in Tucson improves traffic flow, while providing access for cyclists and pedestrians. The Kino Parkway - 22nd Street Improvement Project is an elevated parkway that includes bike lanes, six-foot-wide sidewalks, and a landscaped median separating two traffic lanes in each direction. Underneath it, 22nd Street was widened to three lanes in each direction, featuring exclusive right turn lanes and dual left turn lanes to access on-ramps.
