Concrete poured for underpass work

Sundt workers begin pouring concrete on the upper deck of the North Fourth Avenue underpass.

Sundt workers begin pouring concrete on the upper deck of the North Fourth Avenue underpass.

About 1,000 cubic yards of concrete were poured Thursday night and Friday morning for a deck for a rebuilt Fourth Avenue underpass.

The pour marks the halfway point for the $26 million project, which will result in a wider and taller underpass.

After the deck pour, crews will shift temporary tracks for Union Pacific Railroad and begin demolition of the south side of the old underpass in November.

When completed in spring 2009, the new underpass will accommodate one lane of motor vehicle traffic in each direction, and tracks for the Old Pueblo Trolley into downtown and, eventually, for a modern streetcar.

The underpass also will include lighted and elevated pedestrian walkways.

Tucson Department of Transportation officials estimate that it would take about 100 truckloads of concrete to complete the pour.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
