TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - The Ina Road reconstruction project, which has rerouted drivers on Tucson’s northwest side for two years has reached its end - at least as far as drivers on I-10 are concerned.
All ramps at Ina Road were opened to traffic on Tuesday, April 16.
But not all work is done. Construction work to widen Ina Road continues.
Lane restrictions are scheduled to continue for the next several weeks.
Ina Road is open with a single lane in each direction between Silverbell Road and Camino de las Capas.
The westbound frontage road between Orange Grove and Cortaro roads will remain closed for the time being, according to ADOT.
The project to reconstruct the interchange began in February 2017. Key project elements for Ina Road included:
- Reconstructing the I-10/Ina Road interchange
- Widening I-10 to three lanes in each direction
- Widening Ina Road to two lanes in each direction from Silverbell Road to Camino de la Cruz
- Eliminating the at-grade crossing of Ina Road and the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR)
- Loweing I-10 to run beneath Ina Road and raising Ina Road to run above I-10
- Reconstructing the I-10 frontage roads
- Building two Ina Road bridges over the Santa Cruz River
The next improvement project will be Ruthrauff Road, scheduled to begin Summer 2019.
