    Sunset RoadThe Pima County Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation Authority, and their contractor, Borderland Construction will have a weekend closure for the Sunset Road: Silverbell Road to I-10 Improvement Project. The closure will last from March 18 to March 20. 

    The contractor will close the Sunset Road bridge starting at 4 a.m. on Saturday, March 18. During the closure, crews will work to groove the bridge deck, install survey monuments, raise water valves and remove barriers and traffic control. The bridge will reopen to traffic on Monday, March 20 at 4 a.m.

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

    In February, Pima County and RTA decided to advance by six weeks the opening of the new Sunset Road connection from Silverbell Road to the Interstate to provide residents and businesses an alternate route following the closure of Ina Road at Interstate 10. However, construction activities such as traffic signal wiring, guardrail placement, signing and pavement marking, landscaping and other work will continue through the end of spring 2017.
