On Sunday, March 29, 2020, at approximately 4 p.m., both eastbound and westbound travel on Broadway between Fremont Avenue and Campbell Avenue will shift to the south side of Broadway. This traffic shift will allow work crews to continue the underground utility work on the north side of Broadway between Euclid Avenue and Campbell Avenue.
The Broadway Improvement Project from Euclid Avenue to Country Club Road began in mid-January. The project includes widening the roadway to six travel lanes, landscaped medians, buffered bike lanes, sidewalks, multiple HAWK pedestrian crossings, and bus pullouts. A 96-inch diameter underground storm drain system will be constructed throughout the project limits. The project is scheduled to be complete in September 2021.
During construction, share the road with bike signs will be placed along the project. Bicyclists are urged to use a parallel, low-stress corridor. Transit riders can receive information on bus stop relocations and detours at www.suntran.com/alerts.php or contact Sun Tran customer service directly at (520) 792-9222.
The Regional Transportation Authority is a state-established political subdivision within Pima County that collects a half-cent excise tax from the RTA’s special taxing district. The tax funds the RTA’s 20-year regional transportation plan, which voters in the district approved in May 2006 along with the excise tax. To date, the RTA has invested over $1 billion in the region to deliver transportation projects and services that improve our region’s mobility, safety, economic vitality and quality of life. This project is managed by the City of Tucson. Please visit www.RTAmobility.com for more information.
