On Monday, September 9, 2013, at 9 p.m., crews from Falcone Brothers & Associates, Inc., under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation, will close the Grant Road and Oracle Road intersection to allow workers to reconstruct the intersection. The intersection will reopen to through travel at 5:30 a.m. the next day, with left turn prohibitions. During the nighttime closure, right turns in all four travel directions will be allowed.
The closure, work and travel restrictions will take place each night through Thursday morning on September 12, 2013. Electronic message boards are in place to inform motorists of this upcoming travel restriction.
The intersection work is part of the $7.5 million RTA-funded project that will widen Grant Road to six lanes from 15th Avenue to Castro Street with median island left turn lane modifications along Oracle Road from Alturas Street south to Rillito Street. As part of the roadway widening, the intersection of Grant Road and Oracle road will be reconstructed to provide indirect left turn intersection operations.
