  • May 5, 2017 - Upcoming Multi-use Path Closures 5/31/17 - 6/7/17

    Surface treatments and striping improvements will be occurring on several multi-use paths throughout the Town, starting on Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Paths will be closed temporarily during treatment and reopened when travel is safe again; they will be closed again for striping and will reopen when the paint has dried.

     

    The Town is contracting with Holbrook Asphalt for these surface treatments. The Town project manager is Mark Navarro, 520 229 4866.

     

    The following multi-use paths will be affected:

    • South side of Glover, Kelly Rae to Mountain Breeze
    • West side of La Canada, Naranja to Tangerine
    • East side of La Canada, Tangerine to Moore
    • South side of Naranja, Ironwood High School to La Cholla
    • North side of Naranja, La Cholla to La Canada
    • South side of Naranja, La Canada to Copper Creek

     

    Please note that most of the surface treatments will not affect traffic flow. Glover will require use of Town right of way in order to perform maintenance on the multi-use path; all other locations should not impede traffic or require any closures.

     

    A more detailed schedule will be posted when it becomes available. If you have any questions, please contact Mark Navarro.

The Engineering Division is responsible for managing the design and construction of roadway projects, issuing right-of-way permits for all activities within the Town's right-of-way, and developing annual and long term schedules for surface treatments on Town streets. The Engineering Division also maintains and operates the Town's traffic signals, and the Town's roadway signs and pavement markings.

Traffic Engineering Overview
The responsibilities of the Traffic Engineering staff are to install, repair, replace and provide maintenance to the traffic signals and street signs under the Town's purview.  The Traffic Engineering staff also performs monthly signal maintenance, and responds to any Town signal problems 24-hours a day.  In addition, the Traffic Engineering staff also maintains inventory, and compiles data for internal traffic studies.  

The Traffic Engineering staff also coordinates with other regional jurisdictions and represents the Town on the PAG Transportation Systems Subcommittee, and the RTA Safety Working Group.

  • Report a Traffic Signal Out: email to Traffic Technician or call 229-4890 or (520) 229-5074.
  • Report a Fallen or Damaged Traffic Sign: email to Street Signs or call (520) 229-4866.

Pavement Management Overview
The functions of the Pavement Management staff are to perform inventory and compile data of the Town's system of roadways and to formulate pavement surface treatment recommendations and schedules.  The Pavement Management staff also monitors the construction of surface treatment projects for the Town, and represents the Town on the regional (PAG) Pavement Management Team.

The 2010/2011 ARRA1 funding provided money for overlays on sections of Tangerine Road, Rancho Vistoso Boulevard, Naranja Drive and Lambert Lane thus improving the pavement condition on 16.5 lane miles of pavement.  Our routine surface treatment program helped preserve the Town's systems of roads using advanced techniques on roughly 36 lane miles of Oro Valley pavement.
