What's Driving You Crazy: Sabino Canyon and Tanque Verde

Posted: Updated:

A northeast side intersection is going through traffic light changes.

A couple weeks ago, Mark said the timing at Sabino Canyon and Tanque Verde needed to be adjusted.

He said, "It took 10 minutes to get through that intersection while traveling south on Sabino Canyon. The eastbound turn arrow for Tanque Verde is far too quick. It seems to be worse now that the Airmen Memorial Bridge is open."

Tucson Department of Transportation is monitoring the intersection. TDOT noticed there were big backups from southbound Sabino Canyon to eastbound Tanque Verde. Last week they adjusted the light cycle, which created a shorter wait time at the light.

The latest traffic count found more than 53,000 vehicles use this intersection daily. There's a lot of turn movements and pedestrians cross here. The light operates on a longer cycle than others in Tucson, so it's already going to take you longer to get through it.

Mark told me it's gotten easier to get through since changes were made last week.

TDOT says they'll continue to fine tune it.
