Broadway project moving along

June 19, 2019 - The Sunshine Mile dream is about to become real as another Regional Transportation Authority-funded transportation project moves forward. Broadway Boulevard, from Euclid Avenue to Country Club Road, will be widened to six lanes, with bus pullouts, bike lanes and new sidewalks.

The Sunshine Mile website says that way back in 1953 when merchants named this section of roadway, they shared a new sense of enthusiasm. “It's emerging post World War II architecture symbolized the new American optimism and the national economic boom. Local residents were able to realize the American dream of owning their own business on Tucson's main east-west transportation route.”

The Broadway Boulevard project is one of 35 roadway improvement projects in the 2006 voter-approved, 20-year RTA plan. The project included extensive public involvement during the planning phase of Broadway Boulevard improvements.

Project design activities are complete with utility relocation and building demolition efforts underway. The project is currently on advertisement and construction is anticipated to start in fall 2019.
