Clearing the way for downtown traffic

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Crews will do last minute cleanup and take down barricades in certain areas. 

Yesterday the paving and most of the roadwork was wrapped up.  Crews have been working overtime getting the area ready for the Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Showcase, with the big city kickoff today.

The goal, unless there is an unforeseen delay is to have Congress reopened from Stone Avenue through the Church intersection today. 

Granada should also be open with a few lane restrictions, crews are trying to get this done by noon today. 

Keep in mind gem shows will be going on for about two and a half weeks. 

The shows are worth millions to Tucson, which is why the city is trying to make getting around as easy as possible. 

Regardless there will be lots of traffic around Downtown areas.  The actual Gem and Mineral Showcase inside of the Tucson Convention Center is on February 14 – 17. 

The big city kickoff of the premier showcase is today at 3 p.m.
