If you live in Tucson, you’re no doubt familiar with the Downtown Links project. For everyone else, this project is designed to provide and alternative access through and often-congested downtown area by way of a 4 lane road with medians and turn lanes. In addition the plan includes new multi-use paths, on-street bike lanes, sidewalks, upgraded railroad crossings and underpasses. The plan also provides a major improved drainage infrastructure needed to curtail flooding issues that occur during heavy rains. Other features will include a deck park with public space, native landscaping and art.
The project is in the 20-year RTA plan approved by voters in 2006. A 1.3 mile long multi-modal roadway corridor linking I-10 and Broadway, next to the Union Pacific Railroad.
Trafficade Traffic Control and Barricade Service, Tucson Division is providing our services throughout this entire project to not only protect our partners in the work zone, but to also protect the public, who drive, walk and bicycle this area. It takes a lot of equipment and service personnel to keep up with a project of this magnitude in a densely populated and heavily used area. Trafficade is proud to be a part of an on-going project that when completed around 2023, will be incredibly beneficial to downtown Tucson and everyone who lives, works and visits this unique area.
