Completed:

Southern Arizona Paving and Construction Co., under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation, began a bicycle/pedestrian improvement project in January 2018 from Broadway from Aviation Parkway to Fourth Avenue downtown.

Crews constructed a Two-Way Cycle Track (also known as separated/protected bike lanes) on westbound Broadway. The work also included the installation of new curb access ramps, sidewalks, street signage and modifications of the existing pavement markings and traffic signals. The project was approximately $260k and completed in late April of 2018.

 

Completed:

In 2015, the City of Tucson funded a $40,000 protected bike lane and pedestrian improvement project along the east side of Stone Avenue between Toole Avenue and Alameda Street. The project included two dedicated/protected bike lanes, wider sidewalks, improved drainage, landscaping and incorporated parking spaces. The lanes were dedicated in April of 2015.
