An end appears to be in sight for construction work along Grant Road between Stone and Park avenues.
Crews spent the weekend finishing paving operations, and work on manhole and water valve covers is happening this week.
"The week of September 17th we will be placing the permanent striping, which will be just paint, and 30 days thereafter we will be putting down the thermoplastic striping," said Tucson Department of Transportation Engineering Project Manager David Burbank.
Burbank referred to permanent striping as one of the final steps finishing the project.
"That is pretty much going to be substantial completion, and then we may have a two-week window beyond that to do final repairs," he said.
The project is phase II of improvements to Grant Road. Construction began in March 2017.
Burbank said the road will be complete by mid-October. Its original estimated completion date was July 23, with an original estimated cost of $17 million.
Phases III and IV of Grant road improvement will run from Campbell Avenue to Country Club Road and Alvernon Road to Swan Road. Those projects will be done concurrently, with work expected to start in 2022.
