Sewer repairs slow the midtown commute

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Midtown sewer repairs will slow commuters on portions of Fort Lowell Road and Alvernon Way through the rest of this week.

Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department will oversee overnight work from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Saturday, May 23.

Since this project involves excavation activities, it requires lane closures in each direction of Alvernon Way.  Pima County officials ask drivers to slow down and drive carefully in the area.

Plan for extra travel time as this construction continues.
