Construction is progressing on the new AC Marriott Hotel in Downtown Tucson on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Broadway. In order to facilitate concrete delivery, some modifications to the traffic control set-up hours will be necessary. Below are the vehicular travel restrictions associated with this construction this week. Please note that pedestrian and bicycle access is being maintained in and around road closures.
AC Marriott Hotel Construction – Tonight, March 17, 2016 at approximately 10:30 p.m., the left lane of Broadway will be closed between Sixth Avenue and Fifth Avenue. This closure will remain in place until 4 p.m. the following day, March 18, 2016. During the hours of this lane closure, all vehicles in the left lane of Broadway will be required to turn left onto northbound Sixth Avenue. Through traffic should use the right lane of Broadway as they approach Sixth Avenue.
Additionally on Saturday, March 19, 2016, the left lane of Broadway will be closed between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. with the same restrictions noted above.
The daily left lane closure on Broadway for this project will continue on week days between the hours of 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. as has been occurring since January. It is anticipated that this restriction will continue to occur until mid-year 2017.
This lane closure may create some congestion, so motorists that are just passing through downtown to points east in Tucson are recommended to use an alternate route such as Speedway Boulevard or 22nd Street in order to avoid delays.
