Work continues on Tucson's Modern Streetcar project in the Downtown area.
This week, construction crews will embed the rail in concrete along Congress Street between Sixth and Stones Avenues. Crews will also deliver sections of rail and form the track bed along the Congress Street block between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
Right now, Congress Street is closed to vehicular and bicycle traffic between Toole and Church Avenues. Tucson Department of Transportation officials say the closure is to allow the contractor to remove the existing roadway, complete underground utility work, rail placement and installation of the Overhead Conductor System.
