What’s Driving You Crazy: Silverbell Road

Posted: Updated:

This week we're heading to Silverbell to see “what's driving you crazy.”

Joyce reached out to us  a couple weeks ago.

She said, "Drivers are passing other cars and speeding through the construction zone at Sunset. Coyotes and other wildlife are crossing Silverbell during rush hour. I am concerned once I-10 is closed at Ina these traffic concerns will get worse."

Earlier this week, the new road linking Silverbell to I-10 opened. That was ahead of schedule due to the Ina closure and need for traffic to get around.

Prior to the closure, Pima County took traffic counts on major roads like Silverbell, La Cholla and La Canada. They will take that count again to monitor the expected increase in traffic. The county expects there will be congestion the first couple of weeks, but then the traffic flow will adjust as drivers find their best alternate routes.

You'll still see some work in the area of Sunset/Silverbell as crews put the final touches on the construction project through the spring.
