Project aims to provide safer roads, sidewalks near 2 schools

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Department of Transportation is working to make the roads and sidewalks safer for students who go to Centennial Elementary and Flowing Wells Junior High School.

The project is called the Safe Route to School Enhancement. 

Improvements will be made on Wetmore Road from Romero Road to La Cholla Boulevard, to enhance pedestrian mobility and safety along the access routes to Centennial Elementary and Flowing Wells Jr. High School. 

Crews will be constructing sidewalks along both sides of Wetmore and the east side of La Cholla.  The intersection of Wetmore and La Cholla will also be widened to provide a turn lane. 

Completion of the project should be done before the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year.
