April 1 trenching project begins. It will affect traffic in Sabino Canyon

TUCSON, AZ A trenching project scheduled to begin on Monday, April 1 will affect traffic in the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area.

Tucson Electric Power Company will be trenching to provide power for Regional Partnering Center, Inc. to service electric shuttles expected to arrive later this year.

Access to and from the Sabino Canyon Overflow Parking Lot may be delayed by construction activities throughout the two-week project. The lot is expected to be open and often filled to capacity due to high visitation during this busy season. Visitors should plan for delays.

Monday through Thursday construction will occur from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Forest Road 805, from Sabino Canyon Road to the overflow lot.

Work will be done up to seven days a week on Forest Roads 804 and 804A, service roads which are closed to the public.

For further information please contact the Sabino Canyon Visitor Center at (520) 749-8700.
