Tangerine Road Construction Update: Sept. 5, Sept. 7


There are two new projects beginning next week as part of the Tangerine Corridor Project. Although they are not actually in the Town of Marana, they could impact those who use Tangerine for their daily commute. 

Beginning at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, September 5 through 10 p.m. on Thursday, September 7, the contractor will remove the median on Tangerine Road, just west of the La Cañada intersection. During this work, westbound Tangerine Road will be reduced to one through lane. The eastbound designated left turn lane at the Tangerine Road/La Cañada intersection will be temporarily closed. However, left turns will be permitted from the through lane. The speed limit will be reduced to 25 mph, expect delays.

Beginning Thursday, September 7 at 10 p.m. the contractor will shift traffic to the south along Tangerine Road, between La Cholla and La Cañada, in order to build the new westbound lanes of Tangerine Road. East and westbound traffic along Tangerine Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction, just west of the La Cañada intersection. The speed limit in that area will remain 25 mph. 

**Following this work traffic control will be significantly different, please take extra caution when driving through the area.**

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact Kristi or Nanette at (520) 623-3073 or by email at info@tangerineroad.info. We look forward to working with you throughout the project, and encourage any feedback to ensure the Project Team can deliver a beneficial project for the whole community.
