This is the March 10, 2015 construction update for the Sahuarita Road Phase II Project.
The Segment 2A (Sahuarita Road) and 2B (Nogales Highway) Projects were substantially completed in August 2014.
Within the Segment 2C Project, crews are installing new sidewalks/curb access ramps, new landscaping, and a new irrigation system along the roadway corridor.
In the area between Santa Rita Road and County Club Road, all traffic has been temporarily routed to the new eastbound lanes. This temporary lane shift is allowing for construction of the new westbound lanes between Delgado Road and Country Club Road. Over the next week, crews will be hauling and placing the aggregate base course, in preparation for paving the new Sahuarita Road westbound lanes. Initial paving in this area is scheduled for the March 19th, weather permitting.
Throughout the project limits, occasional/temporary construction zone lane shifts and speed limit reductions remain in place. 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 March 10, 2015 Look Ahead Schedule.
