Scott Avenue makeover rolls forward

The first layer of asphalt went down Friday to give the first inkling of what the new Scott Avenue will look like between Broadway and the Temple of Music and Art.

Trees and shrubbery will be planted this week along both sides of the newly laid sidewalks.

The five blocks of Scott south of Broadway should be ready for pedestrians May 4 and “shortly after that” the street should be reopened for vehicle traffic, said Fran LaSala, assistant to the city manager. Drivers will find a drastically narrower street and limited parking.

The $4.8 million streetscape project was funded with Rio Nuevo tax increment financing money and also involved replacing water lines. A grand opening ceremony is set for May 20.


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.
