Road Recovery: More resurfacing kicks off in midtown

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - City of Tucson crews have started a repaving project in midtown, which is set to last for the next two weeks.

Tucson Department of Transportation crews will prepare Campbell Avenue for repaving from Fort Lowell Road to Glenn Street from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 5 and Friday, November 6.

Workers will then begin milling (removing old asphalt), crack sealing and repaving the area on Monday, November 9 and Tuesday, November 10. This will mainly take place overnight, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Once the main project has wrapped up, Tucson construction workers will raise manhole covers and conduct other finishing touches through Tuesday, November 17. This work will once again play out during the day, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Remember to slow down and drive carefully through this and any other construction zone. Watch out for workers and equipment. Plan for lane closures and delays.

This project starts the third year of "Road Recovery," the five year, voter approved bond program. So far, the $100 million plan has resurfaced about 121 miles of city streets.
