Tucson VA medical center to begin large scale road re-surfacing project
August 7, 2018
TUCSON, AZ – The Tucson VA will begin a large roadway and parking lot re-surfacing project that is scheduled to be completed in several phases. The project is expected to be completed in mid-2019. During the re-surfacing project various parking lots and roadways within the Tucson VA will be closed and traffic will be rerouted.
The first phase of the re-surfacing project will start with the closure of Parking Lot D on August 21, which is north of the Arizona State Veteran Home and will affect parking for building’s 57 and 30. The first phase of the project is expected to be completed around August 31.
Phase 2 will involve resurfacing the Air Force Loop and is scheduled to begin around September 4 and is expected to be completed approximately September 13, which will impact building 95, our inpatient mental health domiciliary. There will be a temporary route to building 95 during phase 2 of the road project.
During phase one of the project, construction crews will create a temporary parking area east of building 95 to be used for any overflow parking during the long-term road re-surfacing project.
We want to remind Veterans and staff to be cautions around construction vehicles and also allow for extra time when coming to the Tucson VA for appointments as parking lots and roadways will be impacted during the project.
We will be providing updates to the re-surfacing project on our social media platforms and our public web page.
