Grant Road Repaving - Santa Rita Avenue to Columbus Boulevard: UPDATE

After evaluating the milled asphalt conditions on Grant Road between Santa Rita Avenue and Columbus Boulevard, the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) is modifying the limits of the Hot-In-Place paving application.

Hot-In-Place paving is currently taking place on Grant Road from Country Club Road to Columbus Boulevard. Work will take place Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, with one lane of travel in each direction being maintained. The Hot-In-Place paving work is scheduled to be complete by Wednesday, April 15, 2015.

Traditional milling and repaving will take place on Grant Road from Santa Rita Avenue to Country Club Road. On Grant Road from Santa Rita Avenue to Campbell Avenue crews will work during the day, Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. 

To lessen the impact on the traveling public, milling and paving work on Grant Road from Campbell Avenue to Country Club Road work will take place at night from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Friday. The following roadways that intersect Grant Road will also be done at night: Campbell Avenue, Tucson Boulevard, Country Club Road, Dodge Boulevard, Alvernon Way and Columbus Boulevard.   

The exact start date of the milling and repaving work on Grant Road from Santa Rita Avenue to Country Club Road has not yet been determined, but the work should begin in late April. 

TDOT engineering staff modified the Hot-In-Place paving limits after finding variant depths of petro mat fabric in the existing asphalt. Because of the depth of the petro mat, completely removing the fabric and continuing with the Hot-In-Place paving method would have significantly increased the amount of  asphalt for the project, thus increasing the project costs. The project is on schedule and both paving applications will provide a superior ride quality.   

The above schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or equipment malfunction. The traveling public can expect delays when driving, bicycling and walking in the work area.  Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work zone.
