Traffic Alert

October 4, 2018 Thank you for your interest in the Broadway, Camino Seco to Houghton Road Improvement Project. This is the first in a series of alerts that will announce construction detours and street closure information as it affects traffic. Please watch for updated traffic alerts as construction activities progress. From 10 p.m. to midnight on Monday, October 8, 2018, east and westbound traffic on Broadway will be shifted to the north side of the road between Houghton and Harrison roads. This shift will allow the contractor to begin drainage improvements and install new waterline, curb, sidewalk and landscaping along the south side of Broadway. This traffic shift is scheduled to be in place through February 2019. During this work travelers in the area should expect the following: • Traffic on Broadway will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Houghton and Harrison roads • Access to side streets on the south side of Broadway between Houghton and Harrison roads will be maintained, however there may be intermittent restrictions as work progresses through the area • Access to side streets on the north side of Broadway between Houghton and Harrison roads will not be impacted during this phase of work • Through travel and turn movements will be maintained at the Houghton and Harrison road intersections • Access to businesses and residents will be maintained • The speed limit is reduced to 25 mph • The contractors work hours are 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Broadway, Camino Seco to Houghton Road improvements include widening the road to 4-lanes with a raised median, upgraded drainage crossings and roadside channels, new drainage culverts at the Este Wash to allow water to flow under Broadway, new sidewalks on both sides of Broadway, HAWK signal at Gollob Road, LED lighting, native landscape and water harvesting features and public art. The project is part of the $2.1 billion Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Plan, which will be implemented through 2026. The multimodal plan, nearly halfway through implementation includes roadway, safety, transit, environmental and economic vitality improvements. This project is managed by the City of Tucson.
