Utility work on I-10 frontage road and Starcommerce Way north of Tucson

Utility work is underway at the intersection of the eastbound Interstate 10 frontage road and Starcommerce Way in Marana, north of Tucson. The work is in preparation of the Interstate 10, Ina Road Traffic Interchange project to fully reconstruct the interchange scheduled to begin next month. The utility work is planned as follows:

Lane closures on the eastbound Interstate 10 frontage road and on Starcommerce Way are in place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. through mid-July for utility work.

  • Message boards and crews will guide drivers through the work zone.
  • Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times.
  • Interstate 10 will remain open in both directions during the work.
  • This work is expected to conclude in mid-July.

The reconstruction project will improve traffic operations on I-10 and on the Ina Road traffic interchange. The project consists of widening I-10 to three lanes in each direction and Ina Road to two lanes in each direction from Silverbell Road to Camino de la Cruz.

The construction is scheduled to begin in July 2016 with Ina Road, east and west of I-10, remaining open until early 2017.

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.
