    The Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department (RWRD) has begun a major sewer rehabilitation project that is affecting access to, but not travel on, the Rillito segment of The Loop.

    Sewer projectThe intersection of North Columbus Boulevard and East Paradise Falls Drive is now closed, which interferes with access to a circle drive adjacent to The Loop.

    Instead, users of The Loop are encouraged to use the following alternate routes and access points:
    • Take Riverhaven Drive north from Fort Lowell Road to Paradise Falls Drive. Go west to North Pebble Rapids Place and then north to a parking area with restrooms and water along The Loop path.
    • Take Paradise Falls Drive east from Alvernon Way (between Fort Lowell Road and the Rillito); and turn north onto North Pebble Rapids Place to the parking area with restrooms and water.
    • Take Swan Road north from Fort Lowell Road; turn east on North Paseo de Los Rios; and take the first left turn (at the Rillito River Park entrance) to a parking area along The Loop path.
    • Park at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park, on Dodge Boulevard south of Alvernon Way; head south on the Dodge Boulevard bridge over the Rillito; and take the path on the southeast end of the bridge to The Loop.

    RWRD is rehabilitating the South Rillito West Central Interceptor (SRI), a major sewer line that is bordered by the Rillito River to the north, Tucson Boulevard to the west, Columbus Boulevard to the east and Fort Lowell Road to the south.

    SRI is one of three major projects designed to rehabilitate aging sewer lines and to build a new sewer line to minimize the potential for future sanitary sewer overflows.
