TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pavement improvements will affect midtown traffic this week, as part of a $100 million street bond program. 

Tucson Department of Transportation crews are milling and paving a portion of East Speedway Boulevard from North Rosemont Boulevard to North Alvernon Way. The work is scheduled to span from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m until Friday.

Workers will continue the project on Sunday, Nov. 2 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. This overnight paving should wrap up on Thursday, Nov. 6.

The construction is part of the five-year street bond program, called Road Recovery, which is funded by voter bonds.

Home and business access should be maintained at all times during this roadwork, unless heavy equipment is parked directly in front of a driveway.

Remember to drive slowly and carefully in all work zones. Watch out for construction workers and equipment.
