Douglas paving postponed; impacting traffic this week

DOUGLAS, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Crews have scheduled paving on Chino Road in Douglas this week, after earlier equipment issues.

Paving will take place from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Chino Road north of Ninth Street. The project should wrap up after Sunday, June 27.

Parts of Chino Road will close to traffic, between Ninth Street and Third Street, where Arizona Department of Transportation workers have reconstructed the road.

Lanes will also close in each direction while paving takes place in the area. One lane of traffic should remain open for travelers.

This is part of a project to divert passenger traffic away from Pan American Avenue (US 191B) in Douglas to ease congestion in the commercial district, right near the Douglas Port of Entry.

Always remember to drive slowly and carefully in all construction zones.
