The Pima County Department of Transportation, Regional Transportation Authority and their contractor, Select Development & Construction, Inc., will be reconstructing the entire La Cañada/Orange Grove intersection in order to raise it approximately three feet to the final grade and elevation. The work will also include installation of new drainage features, plus the installation of new curbs and new traffic signals. The intersection will be closed for three consecutive weekends while crews perform this work.

Intersection Closure Schedule:

1.

Friday, July 19, beginning at 7:30 p.m. through Sunday, July 21, to 6 a.m.

2.

Friday, July 26, beginning at 7:30 p.m. through Monday, July 29, to 5:30 a.m.

3.

Friday, August 2, beginning at 7:30 p.m. through Sunday, August 4, to 6 a.m.

Motorists are asked to seek alternative routes and use River Road, La Cholla, Ina Road and Oracle Road during these weekend closures. All residents along La Cañada Drive north and south of Orange Grove Road will have access to their residential streets. Flagging personnel and sheriff’s deputies will be stationed at the approaches to help redirect traffic as necessary.

All businesses will remain accessible and all emergency vehicles will have access during weekend closures.

Please approach the area with caution and obey all traffic control devices.

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.
