I-10, EAST OF CASA GRANDE

Starting Dec. 6, Interstate 10 will narrow to one lane at night in both directions between its junction with Interstate 8 and State Route 87, east of Casa Grande.

The narrowing is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings until March. Drivers should allow extra travel time for travel between Phoenix and Tucson.

This segment of I-10 will be widened from two lanes to three lanes in each direction to reduce traffic congestion and improve safety along this heavily traveled corridor, a release said.

Crews are working from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday night through Friday morning each week. Two lanes of traffic in each direction will remain open during daytime hours and on weekends.

The $31.3 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act project is anticipated to be complete during fall 2011.

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.
