Posted 9:43 AM 5/1/2012 : Cone Zone 5/1: Modern Streetcar & new SR 86 summer work hours
Downtown Modern Streetcar
This area of the project includes Congress Street and Broadway through downtown from Granada Avenue to 5th Avenue. Traffic control in this area is as follows:
In early May, the contractor will begin removing traffic islands and restriping Broadway between Granada Avenue and Fifth Avenue. This work will be performed overnight between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning.
Turn movements from Broadway will not be affected.
Two lanes of traffic on Broadway will be maintained during morning and afternoon peak hours. During off-peak traffic hours, Broadway will be reduced to one lane of traffic.
Parking will not be permitted along the south side of Broadway between Granada Avenue and Fifth Avenue and along the north side of Broadway near Fifth Avenue.
Construction continues on SR 86 west of Robles Junction with new work hours
The Arizona Department of Transportation will continue ongoing lane closures on State Route 86 west of Robles Junction with new summer work hours starting Monday (April 30) from 5:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Traffic delays will vary, but should not exceed 15 minutes. A future traffic alert will notify motorists when the lane closures will conclude.
As an exception to the summer schedule, crews will not work on Memorial Day (May 28), and will resume work on Tuesday (May 29) and will also work Friday (June 1) to make up for the Monday holiday.
The work is part of the four-mile long road improvement project on State Route 86 between San Pedro and Viopuli Road (MP 137 and MP 141) on the Tohono O'odham Nation.
The speed limit is reduced to 25 mph in the work zone and a construction vehicle leads alternating traffic through the single open lane during the lane closures. Shoulders are restricted. Drivers are cautioned to stay on the roadway and obey the speed limit.
As part of ADOT's continued investment along SR 86, this $6 million project includes expanding the roadway shoulders for enhanced safety, applying a new, smooth driving surface and installing drainage features along the project area.
The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2012.
