SR 77 Construction continues north of Tucson March 27-April 5
Motorists traveling on State Route 77 (Oracle Road),
north of Oro Valley to Catalina, should be aware of the following traffic
restrictions as the Arizona Department of Transportation has detoured traffic
onto northbound SR 77 through summer 2015. The work is part of a project to
widen the roadway between Tangerine Road and the Pinal County line.
Hawser Street will be closed in early April for
approximately two weeks to install utilities, build curb, grade, and pave.
Paving is scheduled to begin at Golder Ranch Road in
The north- and southbound SR 77 shoulders between
Tangerine Road and Eagle Crest Ranch Boulevard are closed through the remainder
of the project.
The following right turn bays will remain closed
- Southbound SR 77 between
Vistoso Commerce Loop and Tangerine Road
- Southbound SR 77 at Thistle
- Northbound SR 77 at Golder
Additionally, intermittent driveway closures will
continue along SR 77, north of Tangerine Road, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays
through summer 2015 for utility work, cattle guards and drainage pipes.
Driveway access will be maintained.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrian are urged to be
cautious while traveling through the work zone, especially in the detour area
as shoulders will be significantly restricted.
Law enforcement will be monitoring this area as the
speed limit is 45 mph between Tangerine Road and Eagle Crest Road.
In addition, please be aware of the following traffic
- Two lanes of travel in each
direction will remain open through the work zone during the day.
- 45 mph during the day, but may
be reduced at other times when lane closures are in use.
- Additional lane restrictions
throughout the work boundaries as needed.
- Cyclists will need to merge
safely onto the traffic lane during shoulder closures.
ADOT works to inform the public about planned roadway
restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or
restrictions may occur due to weather or equipment issues.
Drivers are reminded to share the road, be cautious,
and slow down while traveling through the work zone.
