A series of traffic alerts will be issued throughout the construction of the North Rillito Interceptor (NRI) Sewer Rehabilitation Project. These alerts will announce construction, detour and street closure information as it affects residents, businesses and traffic within the area. The 10-mile long NRI project is being completed in phases; the current phase’s construction boundaries are along River Road from Palo Verde to just west of Campbell Avenue.
On Monday, March 28 the contractor will begin removing the temporary bypass piping along River Road, between Roger Road and Hacienda Del Sol. The following restrictions will be in place during the work:
- Intermittent right lane closures along westbound River Road
- Intermittent right lane closures along eastbound River Road
- East and westbound travel will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Motorists traveling through the area should expect delays. Bicyclists and pedestrians should use caution when riding/walking through the area.
