Tangerine Road celebration set

September 19, 2018 -  It didn’t take long for people to discover the amenities along the new and improved Tangerine Road from La Cañada Drive to Dove Mountain Boulevard: the bike lanes, multi-use path and the drainage features, to name a few.

This week you can see these improvements for yourself at an event to celebrate the official opening of the road. You are invited to join representatives from the Regional Transportation Authority, Towns of Marana and Oro Valley, and Pima County on Friday, Sept. 21, at 9 a.m. to celebrate the completion of this RTA plan corridor improvement project. The event will be held at Tangerine Sky Park on Tangerine Road and Camino de Oeste.

Marana construction manager Tom Houle says it’s an important project for the region. “It makes connectivity from Twin Peaks Road to Oracle Road, which is a major regional connection.” Pima County voters approved the Tangerine Road project in 2006. The section from Dove Mountain Boulevard to I-10 is scheduled to get underway in the fourth quarter of the Regional Transportation Authority plan, between July 2022 and June 2026.
