    The Loop closureBeginning on Thursday, May 18 through Thursday, November 16, Pima County Regional Flood Control District and its contractor, Hunter Contracting Co., will work on the drainage channel improvement project between the area of the Santa Cruz River south of El Camino del Cerro over to the I-10 Frontage Road. 

    The work will consist of excavating approximately 1900 linear feet of the drainage channel connecting the Frontage Road drainage channel to the Santa Cruz River, partially removing the existing soil cement, improving the concrete bank protection, notching concrete wire structure through the soil cement and the installation of three 60’ reinforced concrete pipes through the soil cement. 

    Due to the location of the work, The Loop south of El Camino del Cerro to the Wastewater Facility on the east bank will be closed. Loop users coming from the south will need to switch to the west bank at Grant Road. Alternatively, Loop users coming from the north will need to switch to the west bank at El Camino del Cerro. For questions, please visit The Loop website.

    Please approach the area with caution and obey all traffic control devices. Bicyclists and pedestrians may wish to seek alternate routes. 

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