Rancho Sahuarita Blvd. Turn Lane Improvements

Camino Rancheria and Rancho Sahuarita Blvd.

  • Rancho Sahuarita Blvd. is being widened to accommodate left turn lanes for east and westbound turns off of Rancho Sahuarita Blvd.  This will allow for traffic and pedestrians to move more safely through the intersection and allow for a smoother traffic flow as north and southbound through traffic will no longer need to stop for vehicles making a left turn.  After widened sections are paved a slurry coat will be applied to the asphalt to give it a uniform look.  New striping will also be installed.    
  • Camino Rancheria is being slightly widened to provide eastbound traffic two (2) turn lanes (right turn lane and a thru/left turn lane).  Currently there is only one lane.  This improvement will allow for traffic and pedestrians to move more safely through the intersection as well as allow for a smoother traffic flow. 
  • The curb access ramps are being rebuilt and upgraded to meet new ADA standards. 
  • A solar powered radar speed display sign is also being added to Rancho Sahuarita Blvd. north of Camino Rancheria.  The radar speed sign will make drivers aware of when they are driving above the posted speed of 30 MPH.  Drivers reducing speeds to the appropriate limit will make this section of roadway and the intersection safer.
