Sunlink street car construction update

This update is for the week of August 4, 2013.


The contractor has completed 98% of the underground utility upgrades and relocations and 100% of the project has rail installed. Completed roadway sections for the Tucson Sun Link Streetcar include:

  • All of 2nd Street from Warren Avenue to Park Avenue
  • Park Avenue from 2nd Street to University Boulevard
  • University Boulevard from Park Avenue to 4th Avenue
  • 4th Avenue from University Boulevard to 9th Street
  • Congress Street from Toole Avenue to Granada Avenue
  • Broadway from Granada Avenue to 5th Street - still needs final paving
  • Granada Avenue from Congress Street to Cushing Street - still needs final paving
  • Avenida del Convento from Cushing Street to Congress Street
  • Congress Street from Avenida del Convento to Linda Avenue
  • Linda Avenue from Congress Street to Cushing Street

Cable wire is being installed all along the streetcar route, but impacts to traffic are minimal during this operation and usually only require parking or lane restrictions in the immediate area of the installation. Work is also being completed on the stops along the route some of which will have special art installations.
