    Mt Lemmon Highway at Mile Post 18.2

    Project Cost:  $369,000
    Project Status: Complete 
    Start Date: September 29, 2014
    Completion Date: Mid-November, 2014
    Engineer/Contractor: Meridian Engineering and Construction

    This project includes the following:
    • Reconstruction of 330 feet of pavement
    • Installation of earth monitoring devices that detect ground movement
    • These monitors will be installed beneath the pavement at Retaining Wall 65B located near mile post 18.2

    Starting Monday, September 29th, 2014, the Pima County Department of Transportation and its contractor, Meridian Engineering and Construction, will begin construction on the General Hitchcock Highway (Mt. Lemmon Highway)  at Mile Post 18.2.  Construction activities will be concluded on weekdays between the hours of 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. During these times, traffic control will be necessary.  Travel will be reduced down to one lane of travel with flaggers directing traffic.  Construction activities will cause temporary delays in traffic so that heavy equipment can be safely positioned.  During non construction hours two lanes of traffic (one in each direction) will be restored.  Motorists are encouraged to obey all traffic control signs and move through the area with caution.
