Construction continues on State Route 86 (Ajo Way) for improvements between Valencia and Kinney roads

The Arizona Department of Transportation advises Tucson-area drivers to plan for the following restrictions as construction on State Route 86 (Ajo Way) continues between Valencia and Kinney roads:

Traffic on State Route 86, west of San Joaquin Road, will be stopped intermittently in both directions from 6 a.m. to 4p.m.beginning Tuesday, May 2, through Friday, May 5, to allow trucks to cross the roadway. Drivers should watch for flaggers in the area and be prepared to stop.

Tucson Estates Parkway at State Route 86 is closed around the clock through May to construct and pave the new intersection and roadway to the north.

Traffic on SR 86 will be detoured to Kinney Road and onto Bopp Road.
Access to Tucson Estates Parkway will be via Bopp Road or Camino Verde.
There will be a “Road Closed to Through Traffic” sign with space provided for local traffic to enter.

Traffic on SR 86 has been shifted to the north side of the roadway at Camino Verde.

Crews and traffic devices will guide drivers through the work zone.
Business access is not affected.

Sunset Boulevard, just south of SR 86, is closed around the clock through May 2017.

Drivers on SR 86 are using Kinney Road to Irvington Road to access Sunset Road.
Drivers on Sunset Road are using Irvington Road to Kinney Road to access SR 86.

The turnoff from SR 86 to Old Ajo Way, east of Camino Verde (near milepost 164) is permanently closed. The closure is for the construction of a new westbound alignment that will provide better future access with the new Camino Verde signalized intersection, when it is opened. Access to Camino Verde and the Drexel Heights Fire Station will always remain open.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned highway restrictions and closures, but it’s possible that unscheduled impacts might occur because of weather or other factors. For the most current information about highway conditions statewide, visit ADOT’s Traveler Information Site at, follow ADOT on Twitter (@ArizonaDOT) or call 511,except while driving.

For more information about this project, please call Paki Rico, ADOT senior community relations officer, at 520.388.4233 or email or visit the website at
