The Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) is the lead agency on this multi-agency funded project.
The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Plan includes project #17 as: widen Broadway to 6 travel lanes, plus 2 dedicated bus lanes; bike lanes; and sidewalks.
As part of the current Planning & Design Phase work, this project scope is being reviewed, along with other possible roadway configuration alternatives.
At the end of this Planning & Design Phase, a Citizens Task Force-recommended, community-supported Design Concept Report and initial (15%) construction plans will be completed.
This Planning & Design Phase is estimated to conclude in 2015. A Final Design Phase will follow, which will bring all construction plans to 100% complete and construction-ready.
Construction is not anticipated until 2016.
The next public meeting of the Broadway Citizens Task Force will be held (additional dates listed below):

The total budget for the Broadway Road Widening from Euclid to Country Club is $71,347,000. Funding of the project will come from Regional Transportation Authority (approximately $42 million), Pima County Transportation Bonds (approximately $25 million), the City of Tucson (approximately $3 million), and regional funds from the Pima Association of Governments (approximately $1 million).
The project launched the Planning & Design Phase of the project on June 20, 2012, which will take almost 2 years to complete. This phase provides the most public input and involvement. Utilizing public participation and collaboration with affected neighbors, businesses, stakeholders, and other interests affected by this project, a Design Concept Report will be developed that will guide the final design and construction. A Citizens Task Force has been appointed and will meet regularly with the proejct team to develop this Design Concept Report.
The Design Concept Report will evaluate urban design concepts and roadway design, and will include:
Traffic flow and mobility
Safety, connectivity and facilities for bicycle and pedestrians
Enhancing bus transit capability
Protection of neighborhoods and historic character
Sustainability; greening of an urban boulevard; landscape design
Land use redevelopment opportunities; transit oriented development
Future light rail planning
Gateway planning and development
Based on the Design Concept Report, a Value Engineering Analysis can be conducted to develop a more tailored budget for the improvements to be constructed. The Final Design phase will begin in 2015 and should take approximately 1 year. Land use recommendations will be addressed, as appropriate to the project. Final construction drawings will be created. Right-of-Way acquisition can also be finalized. Utility relocations are expected in 2015 or 2016.
Roadway construction is not anticipated until 2016.
