This Regional Transportation Authority (RTA)-funded project consists of reconstructing the intersection of Kino Parkway and 22nd Street by elevating Kino Parkway over 22nd Street to provide two continuous through lanes of traffic in each direction. On and off ramps will have one left turn and one right turn lane for drivers wishing to enter and exit Kino Parkway. 22nd Street will be widened to provide three through lanes in each direction, exclusive right turn lanes, and dual left turn lanes. Both roads will have bike lanes and a landscaped center median separating the traffic lanes.
The contractor is the Ashton Company. The project began in October 2012 and should be complete by August 2014. The project construction cost is $23.7 million.
The voter-approved, $2.1 billion RTA plan will be implemented through 2026. Details about the full plan are available at www.RTAmobility.com. The RTA has a nine-member board with representatives from local, state and tribal governments. While funded through the RTA, the above projects will be managed by TDOT.
