Grant Road Improvement Project Public Open House

The public is invited to attend a Grant Road Improvement Project open house hosted by the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA).

The open house will take place on Tuesday, October 27, 2015, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Tucson Association of Realtors, 2445 N. Tucson Blvd. There will be a brief presentation by the project team at 5:45 p.m.

The improvements to the five-mile section of Grant Road between Oracle Road and Swan Road include widening to six lanes with bike lanes, and streetscape and pedestrian improvements to create a state-of-the-art, multi-modal transportation corridor.

The open house will give the public an opportunity to see and ask questions about the final design of the Grant Road Improvement Project Phase II and the 30 percent design of Phase III and IV.

Phase II of the project is from Stone Avenue to Park Avenue and is being designed by Psomas. At the open house, the final design will be presented. Phase II construction is scheduled to begin early in 2016.  

Phase III and Phase IV of the project is from Palo Verde Boulevard to Venice Place and is being designed by HDR, Inc. At the open house, staff from HDR, Inc. will be available to answer questions about the 30% design. Phase III and Phase IV construction is scheduled to begin in 2018. 

Additionally, City staff will also provide information on the Columbus Wash Drainage Improvement Project. For more information on the Grant Road Improvement Project, please call 624-4727 or visit
