Below is a list of traffic projects around southern Arizona.
The list was last updated Friday, Jan. 22.
The Pima County Department of Transportation, along with its contractor, Pima Paving, Inc., has deemed it necessary to modify the construction schedule associated with the intersection improvements project at Skyline Drive and Sunrise Drive due to a temporary materials shortage.
Drivers will encounter reduced speed limits as work begins Tuesday, Jan. 5, on a four-month project to improve the intersection of Skyline and Sunrise drives.
Work hours will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. each weekday.
This project will improve overall safety for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians at the intersection. Improvements include re-configuring the intersection to increase visibility for vehicles turning right onto westbound Sunrise Drive and bicycles traveling west on Sunrise Drive.
Stone Avenue will be closed between Fifth Street and Sixth Street through early March for an underground storm drain construction project.

The city of Sierra Vista will be performing crack sealing work in the neighborhood streets within the north side of Country Club Estates as part of its annual street maintenance program.
The work will stretch north from St. Andrews Drive along Brewer Drive and Player Avenue, and it will cover all the neighborhood streets branching from Greenbrier Road. Crack sealing is expected to wrap by the end of January. Then the city will install a chip seal on the same streets in the spring and early summer.
Drivers traveling through the work areas are urged to reduce their speed and drive with care whenever workers are present.

Salida Del Sol: Construction continues on a lift station and enclosure within the Salida Del Sol community off Sunrise Drive east of Swan Road. This is a multi-month project within a neighborhood. Watch for intermittent flagger set-ups on Salida Del Sol Drive south of Sunrise Drive. Expected completion is by the end of February 2021.
Mabel Street: Through early 2021, between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Crews will install sewer lines and manholes along Mabel Street between 13th Avenue and Sixth Avenue in the vicinity of the Pima Community College Downtown Campus.
- On Tuesday, Jan. 19, crews will mill and overlay (remove the existing pavement surface and overlay it with new asphalt pavement) portions of Mabel Street starting at Sixth Avenue and heading west to Stone Avenue. Sixth Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Southbound Sixth Avenue traffic will be allowed to turn east on Mabel Street, however, westbound turns will not be allowed. Traffic control measures will be in place from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Once that section is complete, crews will move to Main Avenue and work westward toward 13th Avenue. This will require a single south bound lane closure on Main Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- Businesses/residents will have access to their properties but may experience short delays due to the milling operation.
Construction is scheduled to be complete by early 2021. Because of the extensive work and excavation required, portions of Mabel Street will be intermittently CLOSED in the area of work. Access for local traffic and emergency response will be maintained.

Construction crews are in the Adonis neighborhood to reconstruct roadways, including Adonis Road, Galleno Avenue, Warfield Circle, and Lettuce Lane, and to build a retention basin.
Crews will typically be present Monday through Friday. The project is currently scheduled to be completed in early 2021.
Flaggers will be present or directional signs and traffic control devices will be set up to detour vehicles around active work areas.
Normal traffic patterns will be affected and may be restricted to one-way travel in certain areas. Access to residences will be maintained at all times.
Drivers should consider Rita Road and Wentworth-Collosal Cave Road as alternate routes to their commute.
An interchange reconstruction project will cause traffic adjustments through late 2021.
Construction crews will begin a project to realign Bopp Road on Monday, May 4. The project, expected to last until spring 2021, will realign Bopp Road to intersect with Kinney Road at Sarasota Boulevard, creating a four-legged intersection. The project will include a new traffic signal and intersection lighting, depressed medians, a raised median island, minor drainage improvements, paved shoulders, curb access ramps, landscaping and irrigation. Work hours will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
The Interstate 10/Ruthrauff Road traffic interchange is being reconstructed to improve traffic operations on both roadways.
Anticipated project timeline
- Mid-Jan. 2020 - Construction begins
- Winter/Spring 2020 - Interchange closure begins
- Late Summer 2021 - Ruthrauff Road/El Camino del Cerro reopens over I-10 (the interchange/ramps will not be open)
- Late 2021 - Interchange reopens to traffic
ADOT will maintain access to businesses throughout the project. The Chuck Huckelberry Loop will remain open throughout the project.
