On Monday, September 21, 2015, crews from Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will begin a fog seal program associated with the voter-approved $100 million, five-year street bond program – Road Recovery.
To minimize the impact on the traveling public, crews will work from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Thursday. The dates and locations where the first two roadway improvements will take place are:
Monday, September 21 through Thursday, September 24
Fort Lowell Road from Oracle Road to Campbell Avenue
Monday, September 28 through Thursday, October 1
Campbell Avenue from Benson Highway to Valencia Road
Fog Sealing is the application of a thin layer of asphalt emulsion that helps cover small roadway imperfections, cracks or other small voids and seals the existing asphalt to preserve and protect the roadway. The above schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather. During this work, travel lane restrictions will be in place, however at least one lane of travel will be maintained in both directions.
Business and residential access will be maintained at all times during the project. The traveling public can expect delays when driving in the work areas. Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work areas.
The Road Recovery Program is funded by voter-approved bonds. All proceeds from the bonds will be used to restore and resurface City streets through Fiscal Year 2018. More information on the Road Recovery Program can be found at https://www.tucsonaz.gov/street-bonds or by calling (520) 837-6686.
