Broadway Project

The Tucson City Council approved an intergovernmental agreement in April with the RTA to move forward on 30% Design Plans for the Broadway Blvd., Euclid to Country Club, improvement project. This RTA project is managed by the City of Tucson and will widen Broadway to six lanes from Euclid to Country Club, with bike lanes and sidewalks and bus pullouts. Please see the fact sheet below for a detailed history of the project.

RTA Funding

Projects of the $2.1 billion Regional Transportation Authority plan are funded by a half-cent transaction privilege tax (also known as a sales tax), which was approved by Pima County voters in May 2006. The 20-year plan includes road, transit, safety, and environmental and economic vitality projects.

The Regional Transportation Authority is managed by Pima Association of Governments. For more information about PAG, please click here.
