Picacho Peak Road

• Through Friday, Aug. 21, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, intermittent single-lane restrictions are scheduled for both directions of Picacho Peak Road under the bridge for painting.

Twin Peaks interchange

The westbound frontage road from Cortaro to Avra Valley roads closed Monday morning. Motorists should use I-10 as a detour route. The westbound frontage road will remain closed until late 2010. No bike or pedestrian access will be provided along the westbound frontage road during this closure.

The left lane on westbound I-10 near milepost 245 continues to be closed while crews pave and stripe the shoulder in preparation for September's traffic switch. Median work is also taking place in this area. The speed limit is reduced to 55 mph.

The shoulder paving and new striping will create four travel lanes, two eastbound and two westbound. Eastbound I-10 will be shifted this September once the shoulder and median work is complete. The traffic switch will allow interchange construction to begin over the eastbound lanes on I-10 at milepost 245.

Construction and utility work are under way on the new Tiffany Loop roadway. The roadway is anticipated to be open by the end of September.

Construction hours are from 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. At times, weekend work will be necessary to maintain the construction schedule.

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.
