This is the July 1, 2014 construction update for the Sahuarita Road Phase II Project.
This week, within the Segment 2A and 2B Projects, crews continue installation of pedestrian safety railing on the westbound bridge. Until the railings are completed, the westbound bridge sidewalk remains closed to pedestrians. Pedestrians should use the eastbound bridge as an alternative route. Next weeks crews will return to finish installing the new decorative rock along Sahuarita Road and the realigned Nogales Highway. The rock installations will require temporary lane shifts.
The Segment 2C Project, is the final portion of the Sahuarita Road Phase II project between Nogales Highway and the Eastern Town Limits (just west of Country Club Road). Ongoing work in this area includes an extension on the existing concrete box culvert west of Delgado Road, the installation of new eastbound concrete sidewalks, and grading/preparation work for new eastbound asphalt. Paving is scheduled for the week of July 7th.
In the area between Santa Rita Road and Delgado Road a temporary construction zone lane shift has been constructed. Both traffic lanes have been shifted to temporary pavement along the northern portion of the existing roadway.
As part of the ongoing construction efforts, drivers should be aware of all traffic control devices/signage and all speed limit reductions, as large equipment may be working near the roadways.
A summary of the anticipated short-term (2-3 week) construction activities can be seen in the July 1, 2014 Look Ahead Schedule
