    CURRENT ACTIVITIES:

    • Construction work on the west side (southbound lane) of Romero Road is under way.
    • Sidewalk installation is continuing. Delays have occurred due to the number of driveways that need to be installed. There are several breaks in the sidewalks and we ask that pedestrians proceed through those areas with caution.
    • Recent rains have resulted in construction delays. These rains have caused flooding in certain areas and created muddy conditions for motorist. Please stay on the designated road during inclement weather.
    • Motorists are asked to pay close attention to material hauling trucks along the project area. Flag personnel will be on hand to direct traffic around these vehicles when necessary.
    • Pedestrians- Should proceed with caution throughout the construction area and remain within the designated pedestrian pathways. Please use those areas designated for pedestrian traffic only.

    SCHOOL IN SESSION

    There is a lot of construction activity in front of the Homer Davis School. Crews will be working in the area for about 3 more weeks. (Most of this work was done during the Holiday break)

    Motorists can expect traffic delays during the drop-off and pick-up hours for school (8:00 am and 2:10 pm respectively). Parking will be prohibited in front of the school. All buses and parent pickup/drop offs will be directed to the back of the school. Access to the back parking lot will be available through the south entrance. Please plan your commute to include these delays.

    Improvements include the following: additional information is available on the project website (http://www.pima.gov/roadprojects/homerdavisflowingwells2013/)
    • Reconstruct 0.5 miles of Romero Road from Roger Road to Wetmore Road to include additional sidewalks and paved shoulders/bike lanes connecting residential areas to Homer Davis Elementary School, Flowing Wells Community, and Flowing Well branch of the Pima County Library
    • Replace and reconstruct the existing two-lane roadway to a new three lane roadway with paved shoulders/bicycle lanes, concrete curbs and sidewalks, and drainage improvements.
    • Two art walls at the school entrance with tile work (tiles) designed by the students depicting dragons, the school’s mascot

    Current Schedule:

    • Traffic control will be in place during construction which will include speed reductions, periodic detours, and occasional delays. Project completion has been extended to February 2014
