Julian Wash

Valencia/Drexel: The Julian Wash between Valencia and Drexel will be closed beginning February 18 for about a week to create a sewer connection at Valencia Crossing. The contractor will build a temporary detour adjacent to the path for users. Thanks for your patience.

Rillito River Park

Camino de La Tierra: Loop users can expect temporary closures on the north and south banks of the Rillito west of Camino de La Tierra for geotechnical borehole drilling to support the design of Sunset Road between I-10 to River Road. One lane of the path on the south bank will be closed March 2, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and March 3, 8 a.m.-noon. The north bank will be affected March 3, noon-5 p.m. and March 4, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Santa Cruz River Park

Ina Road: The east bank underpass of the Santa Cruz under the new Ina Road bridge will have intermittent closures on March 4-5 due to the installation of new streamflow monitoring equipment. Northbound users can use the sidewalk along the south side of the Ina bridge to access the underpass on the west bank.

Grant to Prince: The Pima County Regional Flood Control District plans to remove approximately 140,000 cubic yards of sediment from the bed of the Santa Cruz River channel between the Grant Road and Prince Road alignments. Full Story

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 October 30, 2018. 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.
