Broadway Recommendations Going to M/C

Greetings!

The Broadway Project Team is pleased to share that, after 2 years and 3 months and MUCH consideration, the Broadway Citizens Task Force has developed recommendations about the Broadway alignment. The recommendations will be going to the Mayor and Council on October 9 for their approval.

Ten (10) of thirteen (13) members support moving forward the Preferred 6-Lane including Transit Alignment, which weaves to the north and some to the south, and includes transit, bike lanes, sidewalks and landscaping. The alignment will also have enough roadway width to accommodate future mass transit, such as streetcar and/or bus rapid transit.

This is a significant milestone in the project schedule, and signals the transition into the refined technical design process - a key step to achieving our construction deadline goals of 2016.

The full recommendations report includes the recommendations of the majority of the Task Force, and also shares the perspectives of those in the minority and is available online at: https://www.tucsonaz.gov/broadway.

The Mayor and Council will be asked to approve the Citizens Task Force alignment recommendations, which will be presented by Citizens Task Force members, on:
