The Kino Parkway/22nd Street Intersection Improvement Project reconstructed one of the most congested intersections in Southern Arizona by installing the first grade-separated intersection in the City of Tucson. One of the unique challenges was elevating Kino Parkway over 22nd Street while maintaining traffic during construction! The new overpass replaces a signalized, gridlocked intersection with two continuous through lanes of traffic in each – north and south – direction. The bridges supporting these lanes are twin 344 foot, three span structures. This project creates an attractive and efficient gateway into Tucson. It was built with the public’s involvement, contributions and collaboration, including teamwork that brought government, businesses, design partners and citizens together to benefit the entire community.
