The Town of Sahuarita Department of Public Works will be
upgrading the traffic signal control equipment at the intersection of Pima Mine
Road and Rancho Sahuarita Boulevard on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
Work will begin at 9:00 A.M. and should be completed by 4:00
P.M. The traffic signal will be inoperative while new electrical connections
are made. Stop signs will be in place and the intersection will operate as a
three-way stop. Travelers should expect minor delays and exercise additional
caution in the work zone.
Traffic signal improvements include a new traffic signal
equipment cabinet, a new signal control computer and upgraded electronics. A
preemption system providing emergency vehicles a green light will be installed
as part of this project. Flashing white beacons which indicate when the signal
has been activated by approaching emergency vehicles will also be added to the
traffic signal to improve safety.
These improvements were funded through a grant from the
Tohono O’odham Nation.
