Plant and soil work causes delays on Tangerine Road

MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Drivers should plan for delays in Marana, as plant and soil restoration work takes place on a popular road for about a month.

The Town of Marana will begin salvaging native plants on Tangerine Road near Camino De Manana. Officials will move the plants and store them in a nursery, according to a press release.

Throughout the month of September, workers will also stockpile soil and other materials in the area. This activity should mainly take place in the evening, from about 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Travelers can expect intermittent delays while the process plays out. This will include extra truck traffic and large equipment parked on the shoulder of the roadway.

Town workers said they will maintain business and neighborhood access throughout the construction zone.
