Pima County Department of Transportation, Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) and their contractor, KE&G, continue improvements on the Cortaro Farms Road/Magee Road: Thornydale Road to Oracle Road Improvement Project.

MILLING AND PAVING

On Monday KE&G started pavement milling operations on the south side (eastbound lane) of Cortaro Farms/Magee Road from Thornydale Road to North Shannon Road. Once milling operations are completed the south side of Cortaro Farms/Magee Road will be paved with a temporary detour so that traffic can be shifted onto the south side (eastbound lane) of Cortaro Farms/Magee Road.

TRAFFIC SHIFT – JUNE 20, 2012

Starting Wednesday, June 20, 2012, both east- and westbound traffic will be shifted onto the south side (eastbound lane) of Cortaro Farms Road from Thornydale Road to Shannon Road to begin construction of the north side (westbound lane) of Cortaro Farms/Magee Road.

MIDNIGHT WAY TEMPORARY CLOSURE – JUNE 18 – 22, 2012

Midnight Way at Cortaro Farms Road will be closed starting at 5:00 a.m. Monday, June 18, 2012. This closure is necessary in order for KE&G to perform underground pipe removals and pavement milling operations. Midnight Way will reopen at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 22, 2012. Please use North Wheatfield Drive at Cortaro Farms as an alternate route.

All businesses will remain accessible during construction.

Please approach these areas with caution and obey all traffic control devices. In the event of mechanical failure or inclement weather, the schedule is subject to change.

For more information, contact Annabelle Valenzuela, Community Relations, at 740-6410 or visit the project website at http://roadprojects.pima.gov/CortaroMagee/.

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.
