TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Driver's can expect delays in several areas of Tucson Sunday night as crews will be cleaning storm drains. 

In a tweet Sunday the Tucson Department of Transportation said a scheduled storm drain cleaning will take effect at 9 p.m. Crews from Ancon Vactor Service will be working at the intersection of Country Club Road and Glenn Street and then move to the Stone Avenue Underpass, Palo Verde Avenue and Glenn Street, and finish at Randolph Way just north of Hi Corbett Field, according to TDOT.  

TDOT said this will cause traffic to slow down in those areas as well as create intermittent travel lane restrictions. The work is expected to be complete by 6:30 a.m., Monday, July 31, 2017, TDOT said.

If you notice a problem in your neighborhood with storm drains backing-up or a tree that fell during the storm, you can report it to the city. The phone number is 520-791-3154 or you can email the city at tdotconcerns@tucsonaz.gov.
