TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises Tucson-area drivers to plan for the following restrictions as construction on State Route 86 (Ajo Way) continues between Valencia and Kinney roads:

Beginning at 5 a.m. Monday, April 17, Tucson Estates Parkway at State Route 86 is scheduled to close around the clock for approximately five weeks to construct and pave the new intersection and roadway to the north.

  • Traffic on SR 86 will be detoured to Kinney Road and onto Bopp Road. 
  • Access to Tucson Estates Parkway will be via Bopp Road. 
  • Drivers will see a “Road Closed to Through Traffic” sign; however, space for local traffic to enter will be provided. 

  
Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, April 17, traffic on SR 86 will be shifted to the south at Camino Verde for lane striping. When striping is complete, traffic on SR 86 will be shifted to the north side.

  • Crews and traffic devices will guide drivers through the work zone.  
  • Business access will not be affected. 

Sunset Boulevard, just south of SR 86, is closed around the clock through early May 2017.

  • Drivers on SR 86 are using Kinney Road to Irvington Road to access Sunset Road 
  • Drivers on Sunset Road are using Irvington Road to Kinney Road to access SR 86.

The turnoff from SR 86 to Old Ajo Way, east of Camino Verde (near milepost 164) is permanently closed until further notice. The closure is for the construction of a new westbound alignment that will provide better future access with the new Camino Verde signalized intersection. Access to Camino Verde and the Drexel Heights Fire Station will always remain open.

All work is part of the ongoing project to widen and improve a segment of SR 86 between Valencia and Kinney roads.
