Get ready for delays on Princeby Garry Duffy on Apr. 18, 2008, under Local, Special
Get ready for two months of major slowing on Prince Road just west of the Interstate 10 frontage road.
Sewer work will affect eastbound and westbound traffic on Prince Road there starting Friday
The Pima County Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department is improving the Santa Cruz interceptor main to increase transmission capacity on the West Side as part of an upgrade of the entire regional wastewater treatment program.
“It will be a 24-hour lane reduction between April and June,” Cecilia Vindiola, community relations coordinator for the department, said Thursday afternoon.
The interceptor line has already been installed.
However, the lane reductions are necessary because of the construction of a huge concrete siphon box on the southeast corner of Prince and the eastbound frontage road, Vindiola said.
The box will be 40 feet deep, and 40 feet square, she said.
“There will be a large presence of heavy construction equipment and cement mixers,” Vindiola said.
Watch for workers and moving equipment. Follow barricades and cones through the work area.
Club Crawl closures
The annual Spring Club Crawl will close some downtown streets to motor vehicle traffic Saturday.
City transportation officials said that beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday and ending at 8 a.m. Sunday, the annual event showcasing bands at downtown and Fourth Avenue venues will require the closing of:
• Congress Street from Fifth Avenue to Sixth Avenue
• Fifth Avenue from Broadway to Toole Avenue
• Eighth Avenue from Fourth to Fifth streets
• Toole Avenue between Congress and Sixth Avenue
The Fourth Avenue underpass is closed and being demolished. Use the Sixth Avenue underpass for access between downtown and Fourth Avenue music venues.
Closed from 8 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Saturday will be Alameda Street between Church and Main avenues.
The closure is needed to accommodate placing a large crane on Alameda Street for use in construction.
