Construction is well underway at the intersection of Ina and Oracle Roads.

Randy Metcalf/The Explorer

Starting at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 2, 2013, through the evening hours, the signals at the intersection of Ina Road and Oracle Road, as well as the new indirect left signals on both east and west bound Ina Road, will be powered down in order to complete the connection of the new traffic signals with the existing signals. This work is expected to continue until completion and may last in excess of 10 hours. Sheriff’s deputies will be on hand directing traffic through the intersection until the signals are reactivated.

In order to ensure the safety of the public, construction workers, and Sheriff’s deputies, lane closures for both northbound and southbound traffic on Oracle Road will be in place. Reducing the number of lanes will allow crews to safely manage the intersection.

Motorists may experience extended delays and are encouraged to use alternate travel routes.

All businesses will remain accessible during construction.

The Pima County Department of Transportation reminds motorists to obey traffic control signs and speed limits through the construction zone. In the event of mechanical failure or inclement weather, the schedule is subject to change.
