Kolb Road: Connection to Sabino Canyon Road


The City of Tucson, in conjunction with the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), is improving Sabino Canyon Road from just south of Tanque Verde Road to Kolb Road. The improvements include two lanes of traffic in each direction, bike lanes and a multi use path or sidewalks along Sabino Canyon Road. This project is part of the $2.1 billion, 20-year RTA plan that was approved by voters in May 2006.

Planned improvements include a four-lane roadway with bike lanes and sidewalks extending Sabino Canyon Road south from its intersection with Tanque Verde Road to connect with Kolb Road approximately one-third mile north of Speedway Boulevard.

Construction is anticipated to begin in December 2015 and take approximately 15 months to complete. The Tucson-based Ashton Company was selected as contractor for the project with a low bid of approximately $12.3 million.

A Pre-Construction Public Open House was held on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Udall Regional Center, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Road, Tucson.
