    Even asphalt needs a little TLC now and again!

    The LoopBeginning the week of Aug. 11, 2014, the Pima County Regional Flood Control District will be undertaking a pavement preservation and rehabilitation project on the Santa Cruz River portions of The Loop from the Cañada del Oro Wash to Silverlake Road – approximately 11 miles.

    The work on The Loop from Silverlake Road to El Camino Del Cerro will occur primarily along the west bank of the Santa Cruz River. The path segments north of Grant Road will receive basic pavement maintenance treatments to include crack sealing/repairs, fog coat sealing of the path and then re-striping of the path.

    The path segments south of Grant Road will receive a variety of pavement maintenance treatments ranging from crack sealing and fog sealing to crack repair and pavement overlays and then restriping of the path. Within select portions of this southerly segment, there will also be some path-side grading and erosion repair as well as handrail repairs/modifications.

    The first phase will commence on Thursday, Aug. 14, and will consist of crack sealing and crack repairs on the west bank path beginning at Silverlake Road and progressing towards Grant Road. This initial phase will be ongoing for approximately two weeks.

    This work will be very fast-paced and the locations will vary from day to day and in many cases from hour to hour. The work will be sequenced to minimize travel restrictions on the path segments. When available, and when directed by detour signing, please use alternate banks or alternate routes. There may be instances where path users traveling in both directions will be asked to share one side of the path if they choose to navigate the construction zones. Any significant disruptions or necessary closures will be posted on The Loop website and Facebook page.

    Please travel safely on the Loop and be extra alert near any construction areas.

    The Loop Team appreciates your cooperation and patience while we make these improvements to The Loop.
