Kolb Road Traffic Alert - New Intersection Construction

Work to construct the new intersection connecting Kolb Road with the extension of Sabino Canyon Road will begin Thursday, October 13, 2016, and is scheduled to be complete by Thursday, December 1, 2016.

Between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., at least two lanes of travel on Kolb Road will be maintained in each direction.


During milling, paving and concrete work, travel on Kolb Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Motorists are advised to plan their travel accordingly to account for potential travel delays while driving through the work zone.


The Kolb Road/Sabino Canyon Connection project began in December 2015. The project extends Sabino Canyon Road south of Tanque Verde Road to Kolb Road just north of Speedway Boulevard. The new four-lane roadway features bike lanes, sidewalks, as well as a new bridge over the Pantano Wash. A new signalized intersection has been constructed at the west entrance to Udall Park at Sabino Canyon Road.


The project will also include drainage improvements, native landscaping, public art and multi-use paths.


The project is scheduled to be complete in February 2017. For more information about the project, contact TDOT Project Manager Joe Chase at joe.chase@tucsonaz.gov or 520-837-6619 or visit www.sabinokolbconnection.info.


The project is part of the $2.1 billion RTA plan, which will be implemented through 2026. The multimodal plan, nearly halfway through implementation, includes roadway, safety, transit, environmental and economic vitality improvements.
