The Town of Marana’s Cracker Barrel Roadway Restoration Project is nearing completion. Construction activities will continue to affect traffic movements along Cracker Barrel Road, Hospitality Drive, and Arizona Pavilions Drive until December 22.

From December 11 until December 14, as work progresses, motorists should expect the following traffic impacts:

·       Traffic movement along Cracker Barrel Road will continue to be restricted to northbound, one way travel only.

Beginning at 6 AM on Monday, December 11 until 6 PM on Wednesday, December 13, the west side of the Cracker Barrel Road/Hospitality Road Intersection will be closed so that the contractor can reconstruct the western half of the intersection. Vehicles traveling eastbound along Hospitality Road will be prohibited from entering the intersection or crossing Cracker Barrel Road. Northbound vehicles traveling along Cracker Barrel Road will be prohibited from turning left onto Hospitality Road. Signage will be in place to alert motorists of the closure.

On Wednesday, December 13, from 6 AM to 6 PM, the base lift of new asphalt pavement will be placed along the western half of Cracker Barrel Road. During paving operations, the movement of haul trucks and paving equipment will intermittently affect traffic flow where Cortaro Road, Hospitality Road, and Arizona Pavilions Drive intersect with Cracker Barrel Road. Flaggers will be present to guide motorists through these work areas.

On Wednesday night, December 13, the west side of the Cracker Barrel Road/Hospitality Road Intersection will be reopened to traffic.

·       Directional signs and traffic control devices 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.

Beginning at midnight on Wednesday/Thursday, December 13/14, Cracker Barrel Road will be temporarily reopened to two way traffic while, at the same time, the Cracker Barrel Road/Arizona Pavilions Drive Intersection will be closed to all traffic. This closure will be in effect for approximately one week so that the contractor can reconstruct the intersection. Details regarding this closure, related detour routes, and construction activities scheduled to occur from December 14 - 22 will be provided in an upcoming alert.

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.
