Groundbreaking ceremony for intersection improvements | News
There will be a groundbreaking ceremony for the Intersection Improvement Project at Grant and Oracle, held by the City of Tucson and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), this Thursday.
Those scheduled to attend are County Supervisors for District 5 – Richard Elias, Ward 3 Council Member Karin Uhlich, Tucson City Manager Richard Miranda, Transportation Services Director (RTA) Jim DeGrood, the Interim City Transportation Director Tony Paez and Grant Road Task Force representative Susan Alexander.
The ground breaking will mark the start of construction on the Grant Road and Oracle Road Intersection Project, by Falcone Brothers and Associates, Inc. Construction is scheduled to last for roughly one year and will widen Grant Road to six lanes from 15th Avenue to Castro Street with modifications to the right turn lane in the median along Oracle Road from Alturas Street south to Rillito Street. Also as part of the widening, the intersection at Grant Road and Oracle Road will be redone to provide an indirect left turn intersection operation. The ceremony will take place at the southwest corner of Grant Road and 10th Avenue at 8:30 a.m., July 26.
