Voter-Approved Road Work Begins Monday

A fog seal program starts next week at a couple of locations. Starting Monday, crews from Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will begin fog sealing Fort Lowell Road from Oracle Road to Campbell Avenue. The following week, crews will work on Campbell Avenue from Benson Highway to Valencia Road. To minimize disruptions to motorists, the work will take place from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Thursday, with at least one lane open in both directions.

Fog sealing is the application of a thin layer of asphalt emulsion that helps cover small roadway imperfections, cracks, or other small voids, sealing the existing asphalt to preserve it. The sealing is part of the voter-approved, $100 million, five-year Road Recovery street bond program.
