Work to restore recovery zone on I-19 to move into Green Valley area Monday

A project to restore a 30-foot recovery zone adjacent to Interstate 19 travel lanes will move to the Green Valley area onMonday, March 13.

Crews will begin removing trees and woody vegetation within the 30-foot zone between Duval Mine Road (milepost 43/kilometer post 71) and Canoa Ranch Road (milepost 35/kilometer post 58) through Tuesday, March 21.

The interstate will be reduced to one lane where work is being done in two-mile segments.


The project began in Nogales and includes all of I-19 to the southern reaches of Tucson, and is designed to give motorists whose vehicles leave the roadway a better opportunity to stop safely.


Work will begin on southbound I-19 at Duval Mine Road. While working north of Continental Road in Green Valley, southbound lane closures will be in effect from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. When crews get south of Continental Road, the lane closures will be in effect from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.


When working on northbound I-19, lane closures will be from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. south of Continental Road and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. north of Continental Road.


Work will be done weekdays and Saturday, March 18, and is expected to take eight days to complete.


When the work in Green Valley is done, the project will be complete.


Drivers should proceed through the work zone with caution, slow down and watch for construction personnel and equipment.
