Irrigation work prompts lane closures on Campbell Ave

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - City of Tucson crews have started irrigation work along Campbell Avenue, as part of a Streetscape Enhancement project in the area.

This portion of the project kicks off Wednesday, September 23 and should wrap up after Friday, September 25. The overnight work hours span from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Lanes will close in both directions of Campbell Avenue, between Grant Road and Fort Lowell Road.

The Campbell Avenue Streetscape Enhancement Project, funded by Regional Transportation Authority and other federal sources, began on September 17, according to a press release. The $670,000 construction project includes the building of several raised, landscaped center lane median islands.

Other augmentations include sidewalk connections, concrete pavers, stamped asphalt crosswalks, raised planters, as well as fresh landscaping and irrigation.

Crews will be on site Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. through late November, according to City of Tucson officials.

This is all part of the $2.1 billion Tucson RTA program, which is set to continue through 2026. The plan, which is about halfway complete, includes roadway, safety, transit and environmental improvements. For more details, visit
