Broadway expansion work expected to speed up

The city of Tucson wrapped up installing new drainage systems beneath the roadway

One of Tucson’s long-planned road projects is entering the home stretch. Crews working on the Broadway Boulevard widening project recently began laying asphalt on newly completed sections of the road. As Transportation Department Spokesperson Michael Graham explained to Lorraine Rivera, prior to laying asphalt, crews had to install 19-miles worth of new piping that will improve storm drainage. He also told Rivera that remaining work to the surface will go faster and he expects construction will wrap by the end of 2021. Graham also described other improvements the project will bring to the three-mile stretch of Broadway.
