The east side of the new La Cholla bridge at the Cañada Del Oro Wash is expected to be open to traffic in late August, according to the Pima County Department of Transportation.
PCDOT, Regional Transportation Authority and contractor Markham Construction is expected to pour the second half of the bridge deck from July 29 at 8 p.m. to July 30 at 6 a.m.
The new bridge is part of the La Cholla Boulevard: Magee Road to Overton Road Improvement Project. When finished, it will include four lanes, paved shoulders for bicycles, a multi-use path, curbs and storm drains, intersection improvements, a raised landscaped median, public art, and a four-lane bridge with a concrete deck over the CDO Wash.
