2018 a busy year for the RTA

August 16, 2018 - You probably will see a few more “Delivered as promised” signs along roadway corridors and project locations this year. The Regional Transportation Authority and its partner jurisdictions are wrapping up work on several construction projects and starting new ones.

One project that affects all of us who use Interstate 10 is the Ina Road traffic interchange. Construction started more than 18 months ago and is expected to be completed in early 2019. You can see the new Ina Road already taking shape over the freeway and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks (see photo inset). Improvements to Tangerine Road from La Cañada to Dove Mountain Boulevard are just about done. There will be a special opening celebration for the Marana, Oro Valley, Pima County and RTA project in September.

Head into the City of Tucson and you will see that the section of Grant Road from Stone Avenue to Park Avenue has a whole new look. “The new Grant Road is so different and so improved, I don't recognize it!” City of Tucson project manager David Burbank recently commented. Crews will soon begin paving, and striping will occur in September.

The city is also finishing up work on the Houghton Road Bridge over the railroad tracks, building two bridge structures to handle increased traffic along the eastside corridor.

Several RTA projects are just starting, or are about to begin:
