Beginning Wednesday, March 9, 2016 through Thursday, March 24, 2016, Toole Avenue from Fifth Avenue to Sixth Avenue will be reduced to one travel lane between the hours of 8 p.m. and 5 a.m., Sunday nights through Thursday nights. Crews from Day's Excavating, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will install underground electrical conduit and landscape sleeving during the travel lane restrictions. Flaggers will help direct motorists through the work zone. On Friday and Saturday nights two-way travel will be allowed on this section of Toole Avenue.
This work is part of the Pennington Street realignment at Toole Avenue. This project reconstructs and realigns Pennington Street from Sixth Avenue to Toole Avenue, allowing for a safer, more perpendicular intersection of Pennington Street with Toole Avenue. Improvements include new signing, pavement markings, hardscape, and landscape on Toole Avenue, as well as traffic signal upgrades at the Pennington/Toole intersection.
