Camino de Oeste from Los Reales Road to Valencia Road was widened from a two-lane roadway to a three-lane section with a two-way left turn lane and six-foot-wide paved shoulders. In addition, contractors installed a sidewalk along the west side of roadway, lighting, landscaping and minor drainage improvements.
This project was funded by Pascua Yaqui Tribe Highway User Revenue Funds (HURF) in the amount of $2.95 million. Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) is a partner in this project contributing approximately $55,000 for the construction of an access point to a planned TUSD facility.
The construction for this project started May 2012 and was completed March 2013.
