Houghton Road: Irvington Road to Valencia Road


On Monday, February 17, 2014, the City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Hunter Contracting will be paving Valencia Road at Houghton Road.

Valencia Road will be closed to travel from Houghton Road west to Frost Drive. The paving work is scheduled to be complete in one day. Work hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Northbound and southbound travel on Houghton Road at this location will not be restricted. Motorists needing access to Valencia Road west of Frost Drive are asked to use Rita Road to Nexus Road.

Tucson Police officers and flaggers will assist with traffic control in the area. Electronic message boards will be in place to alert motorists of this upcoming work.

The traveling public can expect delays when driving, bicycling or walking in these work areas during these lane restrictions.  Business and residential access will be maintained to the extent possible with only short, infrequent closures when heavy equipment is directly in front of a driveway.  Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work zone.

This is a project of the Regional Transportation Authority.  The voter-approved, $2.1 billion RTA plan will be implemented through 2026.  Details about the full plan are available at www.RTAmobility.com.  The Regional Transportation Authority has a nine-member board with representatives from local, state and tribal governments.  This project will be managed by the City of Tucson.
