A new face for Scott Avenue

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

A new and slimmed-down face is coming to South Scott Avenue and will give downtown pedestrians more foot room.

The traffic lanes of Scott are being dramatically narrowed from Broadway south to the Temple of Music and Art. Room for cars will be replaced with wider sidewalks, trees, bushes and benches within about a month.

There also will be early 20th century light posts to give the street a pedestrian-friendly ambiance, leading up to the historic performance temple.

Downtowns have historically been havens for people, not automobiles. The work on Scott is the first step in making several downtown streets more welcoming for people on foot.

We’re glad to see the change.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
