    Road Repair Work

    Due to mechanical failures at the asphalt plant, Pima County Department of Transportation along with its contractor, Sunland Asphalt, will begin milling and paving at the Babad Do’ag Vista Point between Milepost 2 and Milepost 3 on General Hitchcock Highway on Mount Lemmon on Saturday, March 6, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

    Traffic will be reduced to one lane within the project limits. The eastbound lanes will be milled and paved then traffic will shift to the newly paved eastbound lanes while crews mill and pave the westbound lanes. A flagging operation will be in place to direct traffic through the construction zone. Pima County Sheriff's Deputies will be on site to monitor traffic.

    Babad Do’ag Vista Point will be closed during construction.

    Barricades will remain in place until temporary striping is completed on Tuesday, March 9.

    Minor delays may occur during this work. Please approach the area with caution, obey all traffic control devices and remember to Share the Road.

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

    In Fiscal Year 2020/2021, the Pima County Board of Supervisors and Transportation Department allocated $56 million in road repair and preservation funding for the Road Repair and Preservation Program.
