    Pavement Preservation
    Starting Sunday night, September 26 through Monday morning, September 27, between the nighttime hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., the Pima County Department of Transportation, along with its contractor, Borderland Construction and Tucson Electric Power (TEP), will be installing a new conduit electric line near the Pima County Fairgrounds. This work is a continuation of installations for the roadway improvement construction project on South Houghton Road from I-10 interchange to Andrada Polytechnic High School. 

     Project Activity

    The contractor along with TEP will be installing a new conduit electric line. This work will require a nighttime closure on Houghton Road between Brekke Road and Dawn Road. In order to maintain traffic along Houghton Road, a detour will be implemented around the fairgrounds by using Brekke Road or Dawn Road.

     Project Scope

    Improvements will include widening of South Houghton Road from a 2-lane roadway to a divided 4-lane roadway, a separated multi-use path that will connect to The Loop, and drainage and intersection improvements.  The project is expected to be completed late winter of 2022/2023.

    Please approach the area with caution and obey all traffic control devices. Traffic control changes and speed reductions will occur as work progresses.
