TUCSON – The two mile stretch on Broadway between Camino Seco and Houghton is “What’s Driving You Crazy.”
News 4 Tucson viewer Kathy said, “Why haven’t they paved the road yet?”
“If we improved the pavement right away, we would be tearing it up over and over for the underground improvements,” said Tucson Dept.Transportation Project Engineer Greg Orsini.
Work on Broadway between Camino Seco and Houghton began in September.
“So basically when you do these projects you start with the underground improvements and this project has water, and sewer lines that are within the road way. We have multiple drainage crossings all through the 2 mile corridor,” said Orsini.
Those improvements have to happen first before crews start laying down asphalt which Orsini said should begin sometime in the spring.
The project is slated to be complete in January 2020.
