Rillito River Park

Swan Road: Crews will be doing asphalt repair work on the north bank of the Rillito River, about three-tenths of a mile west of the Swan Road restrooms, from August 8 to 15. Flaggers will help Loop users get around the asphalt and drainage repair work.

Brandi Fenton Memorial Park: TEP is relocating a pole on the North bank of the Rillito just outside of Brandi Fenton Memorial Park. The work will not impact the Loop itself but please be cautious through that area as they are working. Work is scheduled from August 19 to 26, we are closing one entrance at the park for safety.

Rillito River North Bank: Swan to Alvernon will be closed for 2 days August 13 and 14 for asphalt repairs. It will be a hard closure so no access even in the evening.

For more information on Loop closures or events visit The Loop page or view our interactive map.

Julian Wash

Rita Road: Pavement preservation work will necessitate closure of the path along the Julian between Rita Road and Kolb Road August 29-30. Work will consist of crack sealing and pavement surface treatment.

Tucson Diversion Channel/Country Club Road: A four-way stop has been installed at the site entrance to Kino South Sports Complex construction site (off of Benson Hwy.) and The Loop intersection, effective October 25, 2018. The stop will be in effect until the end of construction, estimated at January 2020. This is part of the first phase of the Kino South Sport Complex improvements, which will include 12 multi-use lighted turf fields; 20 lighted pickle ball courts; concession buildings; parking; restrooms; main access from Benson Highway; maintenance facilities and other items. Thanks for your cooperation in adhering to these travel conditions.

Santa Cruz River Park

Congress to Cushing: Along the east trail from Congress Street (at the Carl’s Jr restaurant), south to the Pedestrian Bridge on the north side of Cushing Street. The closure will take place on Tuesday, August 13 and Wednesday, August 14. We are addressing some asphalt trail repairs and tree work. This will be a hard closure at both points indicated along with closure signage.

Ajo Way detour: The Chuck Huckelberry Loop detour at Ajo Way (see below) will be closed Aug. 19-23 for drainage work in order to alleviate flooding. For the safety of everyone involved, please avoid the area until work is complete. For information on the I-19 Ajo Way Traffic Interchange Project, go to the ADOT project page.

Ajo Way:
The Arizona Department of Transportation will be reconstructing the Ajo Way Bridge over the Santa Cruz River. This bridge removal and replacement project will cause a long-term closure of the Chuck Huckelberry Loop (west bank) underpass at that location beginning October 30, 2018. There is not an existing east bank underpass at this location. ADOT project managers estimate the closure will run through December 2019. Crews will use the area to stage equipment and materials for the bridge project. Once complete, the new bridge will re-establish the existing west bank underpass and will also make room for construction of a new underpass on the east bank of the Santa Cruz which will allow the Pima County Regional Flood Control District to extend the shared-use path on the east side between the Julian Wash and Valencia Road.
