TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Drivers on Tucson's east side have something to celebrate.

Construction on Houghton Road, from Irvington to Valencia, is finally finished. Work started in October of 2012 and the end result is a six-lane divided parkway with new traffic signals, signs, new left hand and right hand turn lanes and bus pullouts every half mile.

There's also better drainage and rubberized asphalt to make the street less noisy.

The city of Tucson, the RTA and Pima County all put money into the project. It was completed on time and under budget.
