STAMPED ASPHALT CROSSWALK APPLICATION
As part of the Campbell Avenue Streetscape Enhancement Project, crews from Pima Paving and Tucson Asphalt, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation, will begin installing decorative stamped asphalt crosswalks at several locations on Campbell Avenue between Fort Lowell Road and Grant Road.
The work is scheduled to begin Monday, April 4, 2016 and be complete by mid-May 2016. Crews will work Monday through Saturday. Day work will take place from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and night work will take place from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Travel lane closures on Campbell Avenue will be in effect during the work. At least one lane of travel in each direction will be maintained on Campbell Avenue at all times. Side street closures between Grant Road and Glenn Street will be in place during various times of the enhancement project to allow for the painted crosswalks to dry.
The Campbell Avenue Streetscape Enhancement Project, funded with Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) and Federal money, began in mid-August 2015. The project includes several landscaped raised center lane median islands along Campbell Avenue between Grant Road and Fort Lowell Road. Other enhancements include sidewalk connections, concrete pavers, feature walls at the Glenn Street intersection, raised planters and new landscaping and irrigation.
The project is part of the $2.1 billion RTA plan which will be implemented through 2026. The multimodal plan, nearly halfway through implementation, includes roadway, safety, transit, environmental and economic vitality improvements. This project is managed by the City of Tucson.
