Road Recovery: Paving starts again on 22nd Street

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - City of Tucson crews have started paving work on 22nd Street between Sarnoff Drive and Pantano Road, according to a press release.

Tucson Department of Transportation began asphalt repairs on Wednesday, September 9, to prepare for paving the following week. The work hours for this span from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m each day, with 24 hour lane restrictions. They should complete this portion by Friday, September 11.

On Monday, September 14 and Tuesday, September 15, crews will mill (remove old asphalt) the area to prepare for the final layer of road. For this phase, workers will be on site from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Expect 24 hour lane restrictions.

The final paving itself will last from Tuesday through Thursday of that same week. It will be overnight work, starting at 8 p.m. and ending at 5 a.m.  At least one travel lane will stay open in each direction, city officials said.

Once all the paving is finished, crews will raise manhole and water valve covers between Kolb Road and Sarnoff Drive. Expect this to happen from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This entire project is part of Road Recovery, the $100 million, five year street bond program. It's funded by voter approved bonds.
