Traffic Alert - Sixth Street Closure - Highland Avenue to Martin Avenue - U of A Friday Football

To accommodate the increase in pedestrian activity and for the safety of the traveling public around Arizona Stadium for the University of Arizona football game Friday night, Sixth Street will be closed to motor vehicles from Highland Avenue to Martin Avenue from approximately 3 p.m. to midnight on Friday, September 22, 2017.

There will also be travel lane restrictions on Sixth Street from Campbell Avenue to Martin Avenue and from Euclid Avenue to Highland Avenue from 3 p.m. to midnight.

Wildcat football fans are encouraged to ride the Sun Link streetcar to Friday’s game. Fans can park, dine and ride Sun Link to Arizona Stadium. To get to campus, fans can board at any one of the 23 Sun Link streetcar stops along the 3.9-mile long route. Arizona Stadium is a short walk from the Second Street and Cherry Ave. streetcar stop. Streetcar passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and purchase a SunGO Ticket, load a pass or cash value to a new or existing SunGO card, or download a ticket to the GoTucson Transit mobile app before game day.

A 1-Day SunGO Ticket to ride the streetcar can be purchased for $4 at any one of the streetcar stops or at the Ronstadt Transit Center. To pay-by-the-ride, fans can purchase a SunGO Card online at any SunGO Sales Outlet or on the GoTucson Transit app and load cash value to ride the streetcar. If paying with cash value on a SunGO Card, the cost per ride is $1.50. Cash is not accepted once on the streetcar, so each passenger is required to have a SunGO product or pass on the GO Tucson Transit mobile app.
