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 new underground storm drain system is being constructed throughout the project limits. The project is scheduled to be substantially complete in December 2021.

The Regional Transportation Authority, a political subdivision of the state and independently governed, has invested more than $1.2 billion in transportation projects and services to improve mobility, safety, economic vitality and quality of life in the region. The RTA collects a half-cent excise (sales) tax from its special taxing district within Pima County to fund its 20-year regional transportation plan. The plan and tax were approved by voters in May 2006. The Broadway Improvement Project from Euclid Avenue to Country Club Road is part of the RTA plan and is managed by the City of Tucson.
