Camino Tassajara facelift begins Monday


The drive down Camino Tassajara is getting some changes as a part of a $5.2 million project to repair and resurface five miles roadway. Beginning Monday, Aug. 16, the work swill start on the eastbound stretch between Sycamore Valley Road and Crow Canyon Road.

Senior Civil Engineer Michael Stella said traffic shouldn't be impacted, but drivers should anticipate brief delays during the day.

The project is funded mostly by a federal grant from the Safe Accountable Flexible Transportation Equity Act -- A Legacy for Users program. It returns federal gas tax revenue to road maintenance. The upgrades would be to curb ramps, sidewalks, median islands and traffic signals.

Work is expected to be completed prior to the start of the school year on Aug. 23.
