Street resurfacing work begins in midtown

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Some Tucson streets are in the beginning processes of getting a face lift.

Crews from Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co. worked on Monday to improve the roadway conditions on Speedway Blvd. from Main Avenue to Second Avenue, west of Euclid Avenue. Crews lowered manhole covers and water valve covers, which is expected to take place through Aug. 29 between 5 a.m. and 4 p.m. each day.

The company is under contract with the Tucson Department of Transportation for the city's $100 million, five-year “Road Recovery” program, funded by voter-approved bonds.

Crews will remove asphalt and repave Speedway Blvd. from Tuesday, Sept. 2 through Sept. 11 from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m.

City officials said at least one lane will be open for motorists in the area during all construction phases.

Residential and business access will be maintained during the project, except when heavy equipment is directly in front of a driveway, according to TDOT.
