    The Pima County Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation Authority, and their contractor, Markham Contracting Company, continue to work on Phase 3 (La Cañada Drive to Oracle Road) of the Cortaro Farms/Magee Road: Thornydale Road to Oracle Road Improvement Project. Several activities will be taking place as construction is reaching its final stage.

    Starting tonight, Thursday, September 3, 2015, at 9 p.m., crews will be installing temporary striping at the intersection of Magee Road and Oracle Road. Lane closures and traffic shifts will occur in order to accommodate this work. This work should be completed by 5 a.m., barring any unforeseen circumstances.

    Final paving is expected to start the week of September 14, 2015. Further information regarding final paving is forthcoming.

    Staff encourages residents to use alternate routes when accessing the area. The Pima County Department of Transportation extends a sincere thank you for patience and understanding during these closures.

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