Crews from KE&G Construction, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT), will close the southbound turn bay at Stone Avenue and Speedway Boulevard. The closure will begin on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 at about 5 a.m.
The reconstruction of this lane on Stone Avenue is scheduled to be complete and reopened to travel by Thursday, December 8, 2016. Left turn movements will be allowed from the southbound through lane. The schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances.

The project will also include new median islands, curbs, sidewalks with curb access ramps, driveways, street lighting, traffic signals, bus pullouts and a new asphalt roadway. The project is scheduled to be complete in April 2017.
