Kolb/Sabino Canyon connection project prompts lane closures

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Kolb Road to Sabino Canyon Road connection project has prompted lane closures on Tucson's northeast side. 

Kolb Road will see the following delays through Dec. 1:

  • Kolb Road will narrow to two lanes in each direction between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. 
  • Kolb Road will reduce to one lane in each direction overnight, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. 

The connection project, which began in December of 2015, will eventually extend Sabino Canyon Road south of Tanque Verde Road to Kolb Road, just north of Speedway Boulevard. 

The new four-lane roadway features bike lanes, sidewalks and a new bridge over the Pantano Wash, according to city of Tucson's Department of Transportation. 

The entire plan is set to wrap up by February 2017. It's part of the $2.1 billion Regional Transportation Authority, which is set to be implemented through 2026.
