Pima County, Ariz. (Aug. 12, 2011) - Drivers will face a traffic-control signal change on Monday, Aug. 15 , that will remain in place while crews construct the northern section of Magee Road and La Cholla Boulevard.
The work is being done by the Pima County Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation Authority and contractor The Ashton Company. The change means there will be a three-way stop at eastbound Magee at La Cholla. Traffic approaching the intersection must stop and then proceed with caution.
The current southbound lane closures in place on La Cholla Boulevard between Magee Road and Foothill Malls Drive will remain in effect during construction. And traffic on westbound Magee will be reduced to two travel lanes, one in each direction.
Another big change: All left-turn lanes will be restricted during this phase of construction. This traffic control will remain in place until late fall 2011.
Motorists should expect delays and are reminded to obey the 25 mph speed limit through the construction zone. All businesses will remain accessible to road traffic during construction.
In the event of mechanical failure or inclement weather, the schedule is subject to change.
