On Saturday, September 6, 2014, travel restrictions will be in place at the southbound Alvernon Way/Palo Verde Road directional split to allow crews from the City of Tucson Department of Transportation Streets and Traffic Maintenance Division to remove catwalks on overhead sign structures.
Crews will close access to Palo Verde Road at 6 a.m. and travel will be detoured to the Alvernon Way/Golf Links Road exit. Palo Verde Road is scheduled to reopen at about 10 a.m.
Once crews remove the overhead catwalk associated with the Palo Verde Road exit sign, crews will then close the Alvernon Way/Golf Links Road access road to remove the catwalks. Southbound travel will then be detoured to the Palo Verde Road exit. The Alvernon Way/Golf Links Road is scheduled to reopen at about 2 p.m.
Electronic message boards are in place to provide advance notification to motorists of these closures. Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work area. The schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather.
