Drainage work continues on SR 86 west of Tucson | News
Work to extend drainage culverts that cross beneath SR 86 will be continuing just west of Tucson next week, as ADOT prepares the area for paved shoulders. This new pavement will be added to an 8-mile stretch of the highway that is located on the Tohono O’odham Nation.
Drivers can expect travel restrictions near San Vicente Road (MP131), traffic in both directions will be reduced to a single lane. A pilot vehicle will guide traffic through the restricted area, dna drivers can expect delays of up to 15 minutes.
This restriction will be in place from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. August 19 through August 23.
There is a reminder that the posted speed limit will be reduced while construction equipment and crews are working. Drivers are advised to be on the lookout for both equipment and crews in the construction area.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but there is a possibility of unscheduled closures or restrictions. Weather also can affect a project schedule.
