Construction of the Goret Road to Grant Road section of Silverbell Road began in June 2015. Hunter Contracting is building the improvements and they are expected to be complete by the end of 2016.
Improvements include the widening of Silverbell Road, between Goret Road and Grant Road, to a curbed four-lane divided roadway, to include a raised median island, bike lanes, a sidewalk on the west side of Silverbell, a multi-use path on the east side of Silverbell, drainage crossing improvements, LED street lighting, signal improvements at the Grant and Goret intersections, bus stop improvements, native landscape, retaining walls at the large slopes, and public art.
Also under construction is Pima County’s Sunset Road, Silverbell Road to Interstate 10, improvement project. This is also a project in the Regional Transportation Authority plan which was approved by voters in 2006.
