Road Recovery: Construction starts on Tucson's east side

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Southern Arizona drivers can expect restrictions as Road Recovery work continues on Tucson's east side.

Lane closures are in place on Speedway Boulevard and Broadway Boulevard between Pantano Road and Camino Seco. Roadwork will also slow traffic on Pantano Road between Speedway and Broadway.

Lane closures will take place on eastbound Speedway and Broadway and on northbound Pantano Monday through Friday, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The westbound lanes of Speedway and Pantano, as well as the southbound side of Pantano will be affected from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Crews will work to completely mill and repave these roads while restrictions are in place.

This paving project is part of "Road Recovery," which is a $100 million, five year voter approved street bond program.  Residential access should be maintained at all times, unless equipment is parked directly in front of a driveway.

Make sure to drive slowly and carefully through all Southern Arizona construction zones. This project should wrap up by June 25, 2015.
