Linking the Warehouse Arts District, Tucson, AZ
The Downtown Links project is a $76.1-million component of a twenty-year multi-modal transportation plan. It includes a four-lane, 1.3-mile roadway connecting Barrazza-Aviation Parkway southeast of downtown Tucson with Interstate 10 to the west. The project team consists of the City’s Transportation Department, the University of Arizona, HDR Engineering, Inc. and Wheat Scharf Associates. Their goal is to best align the corridor with the existing Warehouse Arts District and a new Modern Streetcar. Other proposed improvements to the corridor area include substantial bike, pedestrian and drainage improvements as well as the preservation and reuse of several historic structures.
