Published on January 30, 2024
ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (Jan. 30, 2024) – The Town of Oro Valley and Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) will hold an in-person open house Tuesday, Feb. 13, to share information and seek public input on design concepts for a new multi-use path to be constructed along the north side of Naranja Drive between La Cañada Drive and First Avenue.
Your public comments will help develop and evaluate design concepts and identify the preferred path alignment as part of the project assessment process.
The two-mile long, 10-foot-wide, multi-use path will provide pedestrian and bicycle modes of transportation and improve connections to employment and other essential services in the area.
In response to a Call for Projects on May 3, 2022, for Pima Association of Governments (PAG) competitive Regional Transportation Alternatives Grants (RTAG), Town of Oro Valley staff applied for the federal funding for the multi-use path. The project was selected and awarded $3.449 million in RTAG funding, and an additional $208,930 in Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) funding, with approval on Nov. 3, 2022, covering the total cost for the Town.
The open house will provide an overview of the project and an opportunity for residents, businesses and area stakeholders to ask questions and provide comments. Project team members will address questions and seek input. Information exhibits will be displayed. There will be no formal presentations.
It is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Town of Oro Valley Council Chambers, 11000 N. La Cañada Drive.
For those unable to attend the open house, additional materials and an online form for questions and comments are available on the ADOT website at www.azdot.gov/NaranjaPathProject.
