To accommodate two large cranes that will be used to install steel columns for the new Arizona Stadium video scoreboard, Sixth Street will be closed to through travel in front of the stadium from Cherry Avenue to Highland Avenue.

The road is scheduled to be closed:

From 4 a.m. Saturday, July 2, 2011 to 6 p.m., Monday, July 4, 2011.

Electronic message boards will be in place to alert motorists of this closure. Motorists should use Speedway Boulevard or Broadway as alternative travel routes. Visitors to Sixth Street businesses and the University will be detoured through campus, around the construction area.

Work to install the new video scoreboard began on May 15, 2011. Over the past several weeks, work crews have installed concrete caisson foundations 45 feet deep south of Arizona Stadium. The next phase of work will include installing 55-foot-tall steel pipe columns and structures that will support the video scoreboard.

The traveling public can expect delays when driving, bicycling or walking in this work area. Business access will be maintained. For your safety, please observe all traffic control signage, message boards, and obey reduced speed limits. Watch for construction personnel and equipment in the work zone.
