Silverbell, Twin Peaks paving

As part of the Twin Peaks Interchange Project, the Arizona Department of Transportation and Town of Marana are partnering to improve the pavement conditions along Silverbell Road from Cortaro Road to Twin Peaks Road, and along Twin Peaks Road from Silverbell Road to the Santa Cruz River.

The existing asphalt pavement within these areas will be removed and replaced with rubberized asphalt.

During paving operations, one traffic lane will remain open in each direction. Pavement removal and replacement will take place in two phases as follows:

Paving Phase 1 – Begins Monday, May 10, along Silverbell Road from Cortaro Road to Twin Peaks Road;

Paving Phase 2 – Immediately following the completion of Phase 1, approximately Monday, May 17, along Twin Peaks Road from Silverbell Road to the Santa Cruz River.

I-10, Tucson to Phoenix

Drivers who use Interstate 10 to travel between Tucson and Phoenix can expect mostly-overnight lane restrictions starting Sunday, May 1, for repair work on the I-10 bridges crossing the Gila River. The work is expected to be completed in July, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

I-10 will be narrowed to one lane in each direction while crews are working on the Gila River bridges, approximately 30 miles southeast of Phoenix. Work will be limited to one direction at a time. Initial repairs are scheduled to occur along the eastbound lanes.

The I-10 lane restrictions are scheduled as follows:

9 p.m.–5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights (Thursday night restrictions will end by 5 a.m. each Friday)

10 p.m. Fridays–7 a.m. Saturdays

10 p.m. Saturdays–9 a.m. Sundays

I-10 will be open to two lanes in both directions when crews are not making repairs.

Permits for oversize loads will not be issued for night travel along this section of I-10 during the construction project. Semi-trucks, commercial vehicles towing loads with a wheel base of 40 feet or greater and recreational vehicles that do not require oversize load permits will be allowed to travel through the work zones.
