    Rillito at Campbell AvenueUsers of The Loop are urged to use extreme caution on the shared-use path during and after the continuing rainstorms.

    Underpasses on the Rillito River, Santa Cruz River and Cañada del Oro Wash segments of The Loop have been or are expected to be flooded.

    Pantano Wash is flowing so South Harrison Road is closed. Mud and debris was reported on the path along Harrison, with especially bad conditions south of the wash.

    Debris has washed up onto the path along the Pantano Wash between Kenyon Drive and Sellarole Street.

    The Julian Wash was flowing earlier Monday. The Valencia tunnel was flooded and is expected to have debris left when the waters recede.

    Rillito floodingWater was flowing in the Tucson Diversion Channel from the Kino Environmental Restoration Project on East Ajo Way to Park Avenue, and is expected to leave mud and debris behind.

    More rainfall is expected tonight. There is still a lot of moisture in the air and it will not begin drying out until late Tuesday through Thursday.

    Pima County staff will need to inspect these areas. Because the rainfall affected so many segments of The Loop and because there more rain is expected, segments of The Loop may not reopen or be passable right away.
