On Monday, March 25, 2013, crews from Southern Arizona Paving, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will begin milling (removing asphalt) Golf Links Road between Wilmot Road and Kolb Road. Crews will mill and repave Golf Links Road this week, Monday through Thursday, March 28, 2013, as well as on Monday, April 1, 2013 and Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Work hours will be 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. each night.
During the work, two lanes of travel in each direction on Golf Links Road will be maintained. Following the repaving of Golf Links Road, crews will adjust water valve covers and manhole covers flush with the new asphalt. This work is scheduled to begin on Thursday, April 4, 2013 and be complete by Tuesday, April 9, 2013. As part of this work, concrete will be poured around the covers and barricades will be in place for 24 hours to allow the concrete to cure.
The pavement improvement project is part of the Fiscal Year 2013 Mayor and Council approved Pavement Preservation Program, a one-year, $20 million street rehabilitation program to resurface arterial, collector and residential streets. The funding was made available by restructuring the Fiscal Year 2013 Highway User Revenue Fund (HURF) debt, the increase of HURF revenue and General Fund money.
Business and residential access will be maintained at all times during the project. The traveling public can expect delays when driving in the work area. Please obey all traffic control signs and watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work area.
