Pipeline Replacement Project Update

From Southwest Gas:

Pipeline installation continues in Pantano Road, from Broadway to Speedway Boulevard, with traffic restrictions in place to shift traffic away from the work zone. A project press release was provided prior to start of construction; however, this update includes current project information. This project was originally slated for a later date, but was advanced to be conducted at this time to precede the City of Tucson Overlay Project for this area, scheduled to take place this Spring. Pipeline installation and connections are currently being conducted at the Speedway/Pantano intersection, with traffic shifted away from the work zone as necessary to complete these crossings. Once installation in the Speedway/Pantano intersection is completed, work will take place north of 5th Street and just south of the Broadway intersection to cross Pantano for pipeline connections. Pantano Road will not be closed during this work, but please expect varying traffic restrictions near these locations during these crossings. Each of these crossings will take approximately 1‐2 weeks to complete.

Once pipeline installation and connections are completed, the pipeline will be tested so that it can be placed into service, after which abandonment of the
existing pipeline will take place. Work is currently taking place Monday thru Friday, as well as weekend and night hours, to complete the project in the scheduled time. Please drive with caution through the work zone and obey traffic signage as it is placed for the safety of residents, businesses, travelers, and construction crews. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained. Thank you for your patience during this construction.
