Tanque Verde Road to Speedway Boulevard
STATUS: needs assessment study underway. Design and construction for this project
are not yet scheduled
A needs Assessment Study is underway to provide TDOT with a recommendation for improvements to Houghton Road from Tanque Verde to Speedway Boulevard considering current traffic and operations and updated Pima Association of Governments (PAG) traffic projections. This study updates the recommendations provided for this segment in a 2010 Design Concept Report. The study began in late April 2019 and has a four-month schedule.
The Regional Transportation Authority is a state-established political subdivision within Pima County that collects a half-cent excise tax from the RTA’s special taxing district. The tax funds the RTA’s 20-year regional transportation plan, which voters in the district approved in May 2006 along with the excise tax. To date, the RTA has invested over $1 billion in the region to deliver transportation projects and services that improve our region’s mobility, safety, economic vitality and quality of life. This project is managed by the City of Tucson. Please visit www.RTAmobility.com for more information.
