Twin Peaks Interchange

As part of the Twin Peaks Interchange Project, the Arizona Department of Transportation and Town of Marana are improving 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.

Existing asphalt pavement within these areas is being 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 Paving Phase 1, approximately Monday, May 17, along Twin Peaks Road from Silverbell Road to the Santa Cruz River.

In efforts to complete paving operations with minimal impacts and lessen the length of community disruption, the Town of Marana has authorized this 24-hour-a day paving schedule. Asphalt removal will take place during daytime hours and paving will take place at night. The contractor estimates the entire removal and replacement process, including new lane striping, will take approximately three weeks.

Bike lanes will be closed during paving operations. All school crosswalks and bus stops will remain functional at all times. Children walking or riding their bikes to school are asked to utilize the neighborhood sidewalks and designated crosswalks.

Marana Police Department will be on site to direct traffic when necessary.

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.
