Pima County Department of Transportation and the Regional Transportation Authority announced today that several utility companies are performing utility relocation activities for the La Cañada Drive: Ina Road to River Road improvement project.

Utility Work:

Utility relocations and minor vegetation salvaging are currently under way in the vicinity of La Cañada Drive from Ina to River Road. Various lane closures and restrictions may be included with some of the relocation work.

Motorists should expect minor delays.

Project Activity:

Currently, the contract has been advertised and will be awarded by the end of the year. Construction of the project is expected to start in early spring of 2012 and is estimated to be complete by the summer of 2014.

Project Scope:

The improvements consist of widening the existing roadway in order to improve safety, reduce congestion, improve operations and increase mobility. Some of the improvements include additional travel lanes and a raised landscaped median. There will also be multi-use lanes and facilities for bicyclists, pedestrians and equestrians.

There will be improved drainage facilities, public artwork and noise mitigation for residential areas where warranted.

For more information, contact Annabelle Valenzuela, Pima County Department of Transportation, at 740-6445.
