    Camino VerdeOn Monday, August 17, through Friday, September 4, 2015, Pima County Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation Authority, and their contractor, Achen Gardner, will have construction activities on Camino Verde north of Valencia Road.

    Beginning Monday, August 17: The contractor will begin reconstruction of Camino Verde, between Valencia and approximately 1,000 ft. north of the Valencia Road intersection. This work will include milling, grading, and work on driveways along the west side of Camino Verde. Residents will continue to have access during these construction activities but may see minor delays.

    On Monday, August 24 through Friday, Sept. 4: Camino Verde north of Valencia Road will be CLOSED to all traffic. This closure is necessary to allow the contractor to mill and remove the remaining pavement, place additional fill along the Camino Verde alignment and the Valencia intersection, install traffic signal conduits, complete final grading and pave Camino Verde north of Valencia Road. All traffic is asked to take an alternate route.

    The speed limit will be reduced to 25 MPH on Valencia Road just west of Mark Road to Camino Verde.

    Project Scope
    The project improvements will include the widening of Valencia Road from two to four lanes, and will include bike lanes, a multi-use path and sidewalks throughout the corridor. The project also includes drainage improvements through the corridor, landscaping and public art. The project is expected to be completed by fall 2016.

    Please approach the area with caution and obey all traffic control devices.

    In the event of mechanical failure or inclement weather, the construction schedule is subject to change.
