    • 10-foot wide shoulders allowing cyclists to use widened shoulders (7-foot wide with curb in Catalina)
    • Raised-center medians and left-turn lanes in the Catalina area
    • Retaining walls
    • Sound barriers
    • Traffic signal improvements
    • Drainage improvements
    • Shared-use path on the east side of Oracle Road from Wilds Road to Eagle Crest Ranch Boulevard
    • Two wildlife crossing structures

Speed limits will be raised back to 45 mph from Tangerine Road to Rancho Vistoso Boulevard and to 40 mph from Rancho Vistoso Boulevard to Eagle Crest Ranch Boulevard by end of February.
