    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.

    Starting the week of September 14, 2015, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., crews will begin the final paving of Magee Road.

    On Monday, the eastbound (south side) and westbound (north side) outside lanes will be paved. Crews will work west bound from La Cañada Drive and move east to Oracle Road. They will make the turn around and then go west from Oracle Road to La Cañada Drive. When crews arrive at the intersection of Northern Avenue and Magee Road the north and south bound lanes from Northern Avenue will be temporarily closed at that intersection. These closures will be in place for approximately 2-3 hours.

    On Tuesday, September 15, crews will pave the inside eastbound lanes (south side of road) of Magee Road traveling east from La Cañada to Oracle Road.

    On Wednesday, September 16, crews will pave the inside westbound lanes (north side of the road) of Magee Road travel east from Oracle Road to La Cañada Drive.

    Thursday is held as a reserve day in anticipation of any delays or weather concerns.

    Final striping is expected to take place on September 18th and 19th, 2015, starting at 6 a.m. Striping activities at the intersection of Oracle Road and Magee Road will take place on the 18th, lane restriction and traffic shifts will take place during this work.

    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.
