On Thursday, March 24, 2016, Toole Avenue from Fifth Avenue to Sixth Avenue will be reduced to one travel lane between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Crews from Day’s Excavating, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will be paving this section of Toole Avenue. Flaggers will help direct motorists through the work zone.
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.
