  • 20 years after the fact, Thornydale gets a facelift

    20 years after the fact, Thornydale gets a facelift

    Tuesday, April 17 2018 9:48 PM EDT2018-04-18 01:48:37 GMT

    20 years ago, residents on Thornydale were promised a four lane road along with pedestrian sidewalks and bike paths. That promise was never kept because the money for the project was allocated somewhere else. So Thornydale, North of Cortaro Farms Road, which carries nearly 30,000 cars a day, deteriorated until it is what it is today, a failed road.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Look for lane closures on I-10 this week, as construction crews finish pavement striping on both sides of the highway.

Arizona Department of Transportation will perform "rolling lane closures" between Ruthrauff Road and I-10 starting on Friday, to continue through Sunday, June 22.

Rolling lane closures refer to different lanes closing at different times of the project, depending on where roadwork directly takes place.

Overnight lane closures start on Friday at 9 p.m. and continue through Saturday until 5 a.m. This work schedule will continue through Wednesday, June 18.

Then, starting Thursday, June 19, the two left lanes of eastbound I-10 will close in this area from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

On Friday, June 20, two lanes will close on the westbound side of I-10, heading towards Marana from Tucson.

Delays continue on Saturday, June 21, as two lanes close overnight on eastbound I-10 again. On ramps heading onto the interstate will shut down at Ruthrauff Road and Miracle Mile. Off ramps will be off limits at Prince Road and Miracle Mile leaving the interstate.

Finally, on Sunday, June 22, the two right lanes of westbound I-10 will close starting at 9 p.m. Avoid the on ramps at Grant Road and Miracle Mile, as well as the off ramps at Prince Road and Ruthrauff Road leaving the interstate. They should reopen at 5 a.m. the next day.

Use the I-10 frontage roads to get around this construction, or just plan for extra drive time in the area. 

Always drive slowly and carefully in all construction zones. Watch for people and equipment.
