    Pima County, Ariz. (July 3) – The Pima County Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation Authority, and their contractor, Select Development, are continuing work on Phase 3 (La Cañada Drive to Oracle Road) of the Cortaro Farms/Magee Road: Thornydale Road to Oracle Road Improvement Project.

    Starting Monday, July 7, 2014, at 6:00 a.m. the following traffic control changes will be in place at the intersection of Magee Road and La Cañada Drive:

    • Eastbound traffic will be shifted to the north side (westbound lane) of Magee Road between La Cañada Drive and Leonardo da Vinci Way.
    • The westbound lane of Magee Road will be shifted slightly north to accommodate for eastbound traffic between La Cañada Drive and Leonardo da Vinci.
    • The north, south and eastbound turn lanes at that intersection will be reduced down to one turning lane in each direction.


    This traffic shift is necessary so that crews can begin construction of the south side of Magee Road. The traffic shift will be in place for approximately 6 months.

    The Pima County Department of Transportation reminds motorists to obey traffic control signs and speed limits through the construction zone.

      Motorists can expect delays during this construction


    In the event of mechanical failure or inclement weather, the construction schedule is subject to change.
