Tucson Blvd near TIA to get facelift

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A stretch of Tucson Blvd, leading to Tucson International Airport will soon have a new design.  It will give visitors flying into Tucson a look at the landscaping and artwork of the southwest. 

Making a great first impression is what this project is geared toward, according to the Tucson Metro Chamber, the group behind the redesign.

There are six companies that have teamed up with Tucson Metro to redesign six medians and sidewalks in the half mile stretch of south Tucson Blvd. that leads up to TIA.   

Each of the six median sponsors must make sure they add arts and culture to the landscaping.

For this project the businesses are trying to raise more than $450,000.  The Tucson Metro Chamber's ultimate goal for the project, make a good first impression and get those Tucson visitors to come back and visit again.   

The project is expected to take about three months to complete.
