Construction alert – La Cañada Drive/Moore Road

Oro Valley Town Seal

On Wednesday, September 18, the Town of Oro Valley will close the La Cañada Drive/Moore Road intersection for the construction of a roundabout. The intersection will be completely closed to all traffic (except emergency vehicles) from September 18 through November 22.

August 21, 2019

This will allow the Town to complete the project quicker than originally anticipated, which will increase site safety and shorten the time residents in the neighborhood are impacted by the detour routes. The initial estimate for the roundabout was nine months; by expediting the project, it will allow for completion in approximately two months. Borderland Construction is the contractor.

Drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists will be detoured during the closure. Detour map.

Closing this intersection provides several benefits. It increases safety in the construction area; allows the contractor to finish the project in less time, which lowers the cost of the project; and allows the Town to establish detour routes and monitor those routes in neighborhoods. Oro Valley Police Department will patrol the detour routes throughout construction.

Part of the road detour plan includes placing a four-way stop at the Copper Springs Trail, Salt Cedar Drive and Moore Road intersection. Other roads will be deemed local access only and signage will be set up for that purpose.

Please note: access through the intersection for emergency vehicles will be maintained throughout construction.

Installing a roundabout at La Cañada Drive and Moore Road was deemed the best solution to improve safety and traffic flow. Roundabouts are generally safer than traffic signals as they decrease speeds and remove the possibility of direct “T-bone” collisions. Click here to view a rendering of the roundabout

The Town of Oro Valley apologizes for any inconvenience and asks drivers to plan accordingly.

The Town will be producing informational materials on how to utilize this roundabout before the intersection reopens in November.
