TUCSON - Beginning Monday downtown commuters and visitors will have 1 more road closure to navigate. Broadway between Church Street and Stone Ave will be closed for sewer line replacement.
This project will require a complete 24 hour a day closure of Broadway. This intersection will be closed at approximately 6am on Monday, August 6, 2012 until mid-September 2012.
Eastbound Broadway traffic will be detoured around the closure. The work schedule is as follows:
Monday, August 6 through mid-September - Sewer line work at the intersection of Broadway and Church Avenue, with full closure of Broadway between Church Avenue and Stone Avenue in effect around the clock.
Access to the underground parking garage for tenants of 1 South Church Avenue will be maintained.
Eastbound Broadway traffic will be detoured south on Church Avenue to Ochoa Street or McCormick Street, east to Stone and Scott Avenues, and north back to Broadway. Tucson Police officers will be on-site to assist with directing traffic.
Four-way stops will be in place at the intersections of Ochoa Street at Stone Avenue and McCormick Street at Stone Avenue.
Left- and right-turn movements from eastbound Broadway to northbound Church will be maintained during daytime hours. Intermittent nighttime restrictions may be implemented.
