Pima County Department of Transportation and the Regional Transportation Authority announced today that several utility companies are performing utility relocation activities for the La Cañada Drive: Ina Road to River Road improvement project.

Utility Work:

Utility relocations and minor vegetation salvaging are currently under way in the vicinity of La Cañada Drive from Ina to River Road. Various lane closures and restrictions may be included with some of the relocation work.

Motorists should expect minor delays.

Project Activity:

Currently, the contract has been advertised and will be awarded by the end of the year. Construction of the project is expected to start in early spring of 2012 and is estimated to be complete by the summer of 2014.

Project Scope:

The improvements consist of widening the existing roadway in order to improve safety, reduce congestion, improve operations and increase mobility. Some of the improvements include additional travel lanes and a raised landscaped median. There will also be multi-use lanes and facilities for bicyclists, pedestrians and equestrians.

There will be improved drainage facilities, public artwork and noise mitigation for residential areas where warranted.

For more information, contact Annabelle Valenzuela, Pima County Department of Transportation, at 740-6445.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
