Dec. 13 Update: Cracker Barrel Road construction enters final phase


The Town of Marana’s Cracker Barrel Roadway Restoration Project is scheduled to be completed by December 22. Between Thursday, December 14 and Friday, December 22 construction activities will continue to affect traffic movements along Cracker Barrel Road, Hospitality Drive, and Arizona Pavilions Drive. As work progresses, motorists should expect the following impacts:

Beginning at midnight on Wednesday/Thursday, December 13/14 and continuing through Tuesday, December 19 at 7p.m., Arizona Pavilions Drive will be closed to all through traffic between the eastbound I-10 frontage road and just east of Continental Links Drive for reconstruction of the Cracker Barrel Road/Arizona Pavilions Intersection. During this closure, the following restrictions will be in place:

·         Cracker Barrel Road will be temporarily reopened to two way traffic.

·         Motorists exiting Continental Links Drive must turn right onto Arizona Pavilions Drive. No left turns will be allowed during this closure.

·         Arizona Pavilions Drive will be closed just west of the eastbound I-10 frontage road leaving access only to the New Town Buffet restaurant parking area. Motorists must exit back onto the eastbound I-10 frontage road. In order to access other businesses on Cracker Barrel Road or Arizona Pavilions Drive, motorists will be detoured along the eastbound I-10 frontage road to Cortaro Road.

On Tuesday, December 19 and Wednesday, December 20, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., the final lift of new asphalt pavement will be placed across the full width of Cracker Barrel Road from just north of Cortaro Road to Arizona Pavilions Drive and at the Cracker Barrel/Arizona Pavilions Intersection. During the paving operations, the movement of haul trucks and paving equipment will intermittently impact traffic flow along Cracker Barrel Road at its intersections with Cortaro Road, Hospitality Road, and Arizona Pavilions Drive and at various business driveways. Flaggers will be present to guide motorists through these work areas.

Between Wednesday, December 20 and Friday, December 22, traffic movement along Cracker Barrel Road will again be restricted to northbound, one way travel only for manhole and valve adjustments, concrete valley gutters, and survey monuments.

Traffic control devices and directional signs will be set up to guide vehicles through the work area. Speed limits will be reduced to 25 MPH. Business access will be maintained during construction.

For your safety and that of the contractor’s personnel, please comply with all traffic control devices, flagging personnel, and/or detour signs. Travel time through the project area may increase during construction so please adjust your schedule accordingly. Construction may restrict traffic lanes and create congestion. Taking alternate routes is suggested.

If inclement weather or other events cause delays, the work may be rescheduled without further notice.
