Phase Three of Magee Road widening underway

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Northwest side drivers will see extra delays at the intersection of Magee Road and Oracle Road Friday morning, as part of the Magee Road widening project.

Pima County crews will begin traffic signal work at 2:00 a.m. and continue through about 6:00 a.m. Lane closures and traffic shifts will be in place during this time, so drivers headed out the door should plan for slower speeds and possible backup.

On the following Monday, September 14, final paving will kick off in the area. Drivers can try Ina Road as an alternate instead of Magee Road to avoid the roadwork.

All construction schedules are subject to change based on weather conditions, according to a press release.
