    Julian Wash

    Tucson Diversion Channel/Country Club Road:  A four-way stop has been installed at the site entrance to Kino South Sports Complex construction site (off of Benson Hwy.) and The Loop intersection, effective Oct. 25. The stop will be in effect until the end of construction, estimated at January 2020. This is part of the first phase of the Kino South Sport Complex improvements, which will include 12 multi-use lighted turf fields; 20 lighted pickle ball courts; concession buildings; parking; restrooms; main access from Benson Highway; maintenance facilities and other items. Thanks for your cooperation in adhering to these travel conditions.

    Santa Cruz River Park

    Grant Road: Beginning April 22, the west bank of the Santa Cruz River Park between Grant Road and El Camino Del Cerro will be closed until the end of June. The closure will allow the Pima County Regional Flood Control District and Borderland Construction to begin removing sediment from the bed of the Santa Cruz River channel between Cushing Street and Speedway Boulevard for transport to Meander Bend. The work takes place weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The east bank will remain open and both paths will be open on weekends. 

    Paseo de las Iglesias: Tucson Electric Power will be replacing a transmission structure along the Santa Cruz River Park (Paseo de las Iglesias) north of Ajo Way April 15-May 3. Path users may detour using Cottonwood Lane. The path will be open on weekends.

    Irvington Road:  Tucson Electric Power will be doing some maintenance work on the east bank of the Santa Cruz at Irvington April 11-30 that will close the path for about a half mile north of Irvington. TEP will have flaggers and signage to guide users. Some work also is taking place on the west bank, but will not necessitate a closure. The path will be open on weekends.

    Silverlake Road: The northeast Silverlake entry to the Santa Cruz River Park is closed for construction of the Heritage Project through the middle of June 2019. The closure runs along the east trail on the soft path ONLY from Silverlake Road north to approximately 26th St. The entrance from Silverlake, at grade, onto the asphalt, also is closed. The main asphalt trail remains open for access under Silverlake Road, to both the north and the south.

    Ajo Way:  
    The Arizona Department of Transportation will be reconstructing the Ajo Way Bridge over the Santa Cruz River. This bridge removal and replacement project will cause a long-term closure of the Chuck Huckelberry Loop (west bank) underpass at that location beginning Oct. 30. There is not an existing east bank underpass at this location. ADOT project managers estimate the closure will run through December 2019. Crews will use the area to stage equipment and materials for the bridge project.

    Once complete, the new bridge will re-establish the existing west bank underpass and will also make room for construction of a new underpass on the east bank of the Santa Cruz which will allow the Pima County Regional Flood Control District to extend the shared-use path on the east side between the Julian Wash and Valencia Road.

    Ina Road: The Arizona Department of Transportation project to construct a bridge over I-10 and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks at Ina Road will close The Loop south of Ina Road at Ted Walker Road and north of Ina Road at the Crossroads at Silverbell District Park for approximately two years. Project is set to begin in January 2017. Once the bridge project is completed, there will be Loop trail underpasses on each side of the Santa Cruz River, new access ramps to Ina Road and new bike lanes and sidewalks along Ina Road.
