Road closures for the State Route 86 (Ajo Way) improvements begin April 4

Sunset Boulevard, just south of State Route 86, will be closed around the clock beginning 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 4, through early May 2017. Drivers will use Kinney or Sheridan roads as alternate routes.

Beginning Friday, April 10, Tucson Estates Parkway is scheduled to close around the clock for approximately five weeks. Traffic on SR 86 will be detoured to Kinney Road and onto Bopp Road.

The turnoff to Old Ajo Way from SR 86, located near milepost 164, is closed for the construction of a new westbound alignment and will not reopen until the alignment is complete. No date is set for that reopening.

All work is part of the ongoing project to widen and improve a segment of SR 86 between Valencia and Kinney roads.

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
