Contractors for Southwest Gas have begun work in the downtown area to move/upgrade underground utility lines in preparation of the upcoming rail placement for the Tucson Modern Streetcar.
This phase of Southwest Gas work will occur in areas along Broadway and Congress between Fourth Avenue and Granada Avenue. In order to lessen the impact to the traveling public, some work will be completed overnight between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning. Regular daytime work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
