    Julian Wash

    Kolb to Wilmot: Drainage improvements at multiple locations across the Loop will necessitate a closure of the Julian between Wilmot and Kolb. Users will detour on southbound Wilmot to eastbound Los Reales to northbound Via Bombachas. Work will last Oct. 7-11.

    Kino Sports Complex:
    Pima County and its contractor Haydon Building Corp., will be performing modifications to the Loop pathway along the Julian Wash between Kino Boulevard and Country Club Road that will close the path Sept. 13-19. Work will consist of pathway relocation to accommodate the Kino South Sports Complex development. Work begins at 9 a.m. Sept. 13 and will involve demolishing portions of the pavement in preparation for paving. The closure will last through the weekend. Loop users must exit the path either at the bridge over the Tucson Diversion Channel on the western end, or at Country Club Road on the eastern end. The segment between Country Club Road and the Diversion Channel bridge is a car-free, shared-use path. Country Club Road has paved shoulders.

    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 Oct. 25. 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.

    Pantano River Park

    Speedway: Loop users will experience intermittent closures along the west bank of the Pantano at Speedway beginning Oct. 4 and continuing for two to three weeks. Users should cross over to the east bank at either Tanque Verde or Sabino Canyon. The contractor will be fusing pipe as part of the sanitary sewer work being conducted by Pima County Wastewater Reclamation and its contractor, B&F Contracting, Inc.

    Santa Cruz River Park  

    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 Oct. 30. 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.
