Shannon Road pavement and reconstruction project begins Feb. 21

Published on February 17, 2023


ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (Feb. 17, 2023) – The Town of Oro Valley will begin the Shannon Road pavement and reconstruction overlay project on February 21. During construction, Shannon Road from Lambert Lane to Naranja Drive will be limited to one lane of traffic with speed reduced to 25 mph. Drivers should expect delays. Please see details below. The project is expected to finish by April 14. 

The project entails contractor KE&G pulverizing the existing asphalt, regrading the road and then replacing it with new asphalt. Once complete, Shannon Road will be a smoother drive. The construction will also result in cost savings since new asphalt requires less maintenance. 

Traffic delay details 

For the duration of the project, Shannon Road will be reduced to one lane of travel during the work day, from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. During that time, a construction flagger or pilot car will direct traffic. Drivers should expect delays. Outside of construction hours (late evening/overnight), two lanes will be opened for travel in both directions; however, the 25 mph speed reduction will remain in place. Drivers are asked to use caution, pay attention to the speed limit, and follow road signs. Construction message boards will be placed before the construction area to alert drivers to slow down and watch out for construction crews and equipment. We appreciate your patience as we work to improve Shannon Road.
