Northbound Lane closures on Oracle Road start May 22

Published on May 17, 2023


ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (May 17, 2023) – The Town of Oro Valley Street Operations will perform bi-annual median maintenance on Oracle Road (State Route 77) from Ina Road to milepost 84 (just north of Big Wash Overlook Place) starting May 22 through May 26. This will be what is considered a moving operation, which means that various sections of the northbound left lane starting at Ina Road will be closed everyday between 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. as crews work north to milepost 84. Construction signs, arrows, message board and traffic control will be in place during work hours. Drivers are asked to pay attention and use caution while driving in the work zone. Outside of construction hours, all northbound lanes of Oracle Road will be open.

Median maintenance work will include tree trimming, weed control, dead plant and trash removal and raking. Although Oracle Road is a state route and managed by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), the Town has had an intergovernmental agreement with ADOT since 2010 for median landscape maintenance on Oracle Road within Oro Valley Town limits.

The Town of Oro Valley appreciates your patience and attention to safety as staff works to beautify Oracle Road.
