Latest indirect turn lane under construction at Grant and Oracle

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There is one more indirect left turn coming to Tucson, as the intersection of Grant and Oracle is closed this morning for crews to reconstruct it.

The good news for morning commuters, the intersection should be reopened by the time traffic picks up.  Crews began work last night at 9 p.m. and are expected to be finished by 5:30 a.m.

Similar closures will happen nightly, through Thursday morning as crews rebuild the intersection as part of a $7.5 million RTA project.

Once the intersection project is finished drivers can expect new street lights, traffic signals, crosswalks and sidewalks.

The improvements will also include a new indirect left turn lane, just like the one installed at Oracle and Ina last week.

The Grant Road indirect left turn intersections will have special spots just for those on bicycles to make left turns as well. 

The intersection should be up and running by early October.
