Downtown parking restricted for streetcar construction

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Downtown parking will be restricted this week as crews install overhead contact wires for the Sun Link streetcar.

Parking along the south side of Congress Street will be restricted. Vehicles parked in restricted areas will be towed.

Speedway Boulevard will also be restricted in the early hours of Tuesday while heavy equipment is brought into the work area at the Warren Avenue Underpass.

The right lane of eastbound Speedway Boulevard will be closed from Cherry Avenue to Martin Avenue from 1 a.m. to 10 a.m. The Sun Tran bus stop and the bike lane along this section of road will be temporarily closed, too.

Tucson News Now's Bud Foster will have an update on the streetcar project tonight on KOLD News 13. He can be followed on Twitter at @BudFoster.
