TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Motorists can expect delays on Tuesday and Wednesday while transportation crews begin placing girders on the north and south side of the Valencia Road Bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad, according to the Pima County Department of Transportation.

Crews from PCDOT, the Regional Transportation Authority and their contractor KE&G Construction Incorporated will begin work on the south side of the bridge's eastbound Valencia Road lanes on Tuesday between 5 a.m. and 2 p.m. Traffic will not be detoured during this time, according to a PCDOT news release.

Crews will begin working on the north side of the bridge's westbound Valencia Road lanes on Wednesday between 5 a.m. and 2 p.m. All traffic will be detoured onto the south side of the roadway onto a milled road while work is underway. Traffic will be detoured back to paved road on the north side of the roadway when work is completed.

There will be one lane of travel open for east and westbound travel lanes during the two days. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes during the time of construction.

The speed limit is 25 miles per hour while construction is in place. The Pima County Transportation Department asks motorists to use caution while driving in the work area and to follow all traffic control devices.

The construction schedule will change if there is mechanical failure or the weather permits.
