Construction Crews Beginning Work on Cortaro Farms Road

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

Road work season continues as construction crews in the northwest side begin work on a widening project on Monday, September 25.

Crews are working on an improvement project along Cortaro Farms Road, stretching from Camino de Oeste to Thornydale Road. Drivers may have noticed crews prepping for the project in previous months, and now they should anticipate delays and plan ahead.

For the next six to eight months, crews will concentrate on the eastbound lanes of the road. Once that’s complete, they will flip flop and work on the other side next year. They are working on widening the road to double lanes on each side, as well as installing sound barrier walls in residential areas and making upgrades to the traffic light at Old Father. This project is underway at the same time as the Ina Road closure, which has caused some frustration and controversy as many people use Cortaro Farms as a detour.

Motorists are already reporting delays, as the speed limit can drop to 15 miles per hour in some areas. It is important that drivers are prepared to slow down or shift lanes.

 

 

 

 

According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the county and the contractor agreed on an 18-month timetable, but Pima County hopes to have the project completed by the end of 2018.

The county and the contractor agreed on an 18-month agreement; however, the county hopes to wrap up the project before the end of next year.
