This is the January 13, 2015 construction update for the Sahuarita Road Phase II Project.
The Segment 2A (Sahuarita Road) and 2B (Nogales Highway) Projects were substantially completed in August 2014.
Within the Segment 2C Project, crews are installing new concrete curb near the railroad tracks and just west of Delgado Road, in advance of asphalt paving. New landscaping and irrigation system are also being installed.
Between the Pecan Factory and Delgado Road, all Sahuarita Road traffic has been shifted to the new/permanent travel lanes, separated by a new raised median. Temporary construction zone lane shifts remain in place near the railroad tracks and Delgado Road intersection (allowing construction of the remaining drainage structures and roadway).
As part of the ongoing construction efforts, drivers should be aware of all traffic control devices/signage and all speed limit reductions, as large equipment may be working near the roadways.
A summary of the anticipated short-term (2-3 week) construction activities can be seen in the January 13, 2015 Look Ahead Schedule.
