Ochoa Streetscape

The Rio Nuevo funded Ochoa Streetscape improvement project compliments the brand new Catholic Diocese of Tucson complex and renovation of nearby historic cathedral buildings (Photo/DTP November 2019).



In conjunction with the new development and revitalization at Cathedral Square, Rio Nuevo funded $1 million in streetscape improvements to Ochoa Street from Church Avenue to Stone Avenue. Improvements included resurfacing the roadway with a design, enhanced sidewalks, shade trees and other improvements. The streetscape improvements will enhance the walkway that leads from the proposed dual-branded Hilton Hotels to the Tucson Convention Center, while tying into the new walkway enhancements in front of the recently completed Conference and Education Center.

Ochoa Streetscape was completed in October of 2019 and open to vehicular traffic in December of 2019. More information can be found on Rio Nuevo’s website.
