Improvements on Valencia to cause detours/delays through 2/5

Routes 11, 26, 201X

Crews from Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), are beginning roadway improvements on Valencia Road from Alvernon Way to just west of Campbell Avenue. This roadway reconstruction project is associated with the voter-approved $100 million, five-year street bond program – Road Recovery.

The project will begin with underground electrical conduit work at the Campbell Avenue and Valencia Road intersection. Crews will also lower manhole covers and water valve covers on Valencia Road from Alvernon Way to just west of Campbell Avenue, followed by milling (removing asphalt) and repaving.

To expedite the work, crews will work both daytime and nighttime hours, Monday through Friday, with occasional weekend work. Day work will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and night work will be 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. The following schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances.

Monday, December 12, 2016 through Thursday, December 22, 2016 – Utility lowerings.

Monday, December 12, 2016 through Friday, December 30, 2016 – Underground electrical work at the Campbell/Valencia intersection.

Tuesday, January 3, 2017 through Sunday, February 5, 2017 – Milling/Paving.

During this work, travel lane restrictions will be in place. During the intersection electrical work there will be only one eastbound and one westbound travel lane open on Valencia Road. During the utility adjustments and milling and paving there will be two travel lanes open in each direction on Valencia Road.

Business and residential access will be maintained at all times during the project. The traveling public can expect delays when driving in the work areas. Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in these work areas.
