Traffic Alert - Grant Road Improvement Project Phase II Stone to Park - Eastbound Traffic Shift Hampton Street to Park Avenue

On Monday, February 12, 2018, eastbound travel on Grant Road between Hampton Street and Santa Rita Avenue will be shifted to the south side of Grant Road to allow crews to remove an existing sewer line. The sewer line removal will take place between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Following the sewer line removal, eastbound travel on this section of Grant Road will remain in this configuration for the duration of the Grant Road Improvement Project.

Work to widen Grant Road from Stone Avenue to Park Avenue began in March 2017. The improvements include six vehicular travel lanes, protected bike/pedestrian street crossings, drainage improvements, indirect left turns at Stone Avenue and First Avenue, bike lanes and sidewalks, bus pullouts and bus shelters, and public art. For more information, please visit www.grantroad.info or email information@grantroad.info.

The speed limit in the construction zone has been reduced to 25 mph and motorists can expect delays while traveling through the work zone. Please be cautious of equipment and construction personnel in the work areas. The schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances.

The project is part of the $2.1 billion Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Plan, which will be implemented through 2026. The multimodal plan, nearly halfway through implementation, includes roadway, safety, transit, environmental and economic vitality improvements. This project is managed by the City of Tucson.
