TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The city of Tucson is preparing for monsoon, which officially starts on June 15. Drivers can expect to see workers in the areas near Tucson Boulevard and Gr ant Road as they rebuild storm drains and add a new storm grate in an effort to get ready for storm runoff.

Crews are working from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday until construction on the project is done. City officials say they anticipate crews will be done in mid-July.
