TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Watch for traffic delays on Broadway Boulevard in midtown through Thursday, June 12, as construction crews sealcoat a portion of it.

Construction crews are improving Broadway Boulevard between Stewart Avenue and Williams Boulevard from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. as part of the $100 million road recovery program.

They're also improving the intersections of Broadway and Country Club, as well as Broadway and Alvernon.

Lane closures should be in place during this roadwork. However, one lane of travel should remain open in each direction, according to City of Tucson officials.

To avoid delays you can use 22nd Street or Speedway Boulevard as alternates. Otherwise, just plan for extra travel time on Broadway.

The five-year Road Recovery Program, which is voter funded, should continue through 2018. 

For more information on the long-term project, visit www.tucsonaz.gov/streetbonds or call (520) 837-6686.
