Presentation: Finishing the Santa Cruz River Linear Park – Alternatives North of Avra Valley Road

Presenter: Alejandro Angel, PhD, PE, PTOE, RSP, Psomas

The portion of the Loop along the Santa Cruz River is planned to extend from Valencia Road to Sanders Road in Marana, connecting southwest Tucson, Marana and other areas to downtown. With the recent construction of a segment near Gladden Farms in Marana, there is only a 1.8 mile segment that needs to be completed in order to create a 31-mile uninterrupted river park along the Santa Cruz River. However, the missing segment is extremely challenging as the Loop must cross the Santa Cruz River, and travel along a privately-owned mining property that includes crossings of a Haul road and a large conveyor belt. This presentation will discuss the alternatives that have been developed to complete this missing link, the considerations in evaluating the various alternatives, and the process of addressing concerns from the property owners along the alignment.

The meeting will be at the Pima County Complex, 1313 S. Mission Road. Lunch will be El Molinto and will begin at 11:30 AM, with the presentation beginning at 12:00 pm. Please RSVP to SAITE@outlook.com by Wednesday, March 20. We hope to see you there!
