Downtown Links Constructors (DLC), under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility are working on the Downtown Links project, which began in August 2020.
Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians should anticipate intermittent lane restrictions throughout the limits of the project in addition to the following upcoming work:
Beginning at 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 30 through approximately 3 p.m. on Friday, April 1, the Sixth Avenue underpass will be closed to all pedestrian and bicycle travel between Toole Avenue and Seventh Street. This portion of roadway is already closed to vehicular travel. The closure allows the contractor to safely complete construction of the deck for the new bridge that spans across/over Sixth Avenue. The roadway will remain closed to vehicular travel through approximately mid-May 2022.
The Regional Transportation Authority, a political subdivision of the state and independently governed, has invested more than $1.2 billion in transportation projects and services to improve mobility, safety, economic vitality and quality of life in the region. The RTA collects a half-cent excise (sales) tax from its special taxing district within Pima County to fund its 20-year regional transportation plan. The plan and tax were approved by voters in May 2006. The Downtown Links project is part of the RTA plan and is managed by the City of Tucson. For more information, visit www.RTAmobility.com
