New Traffic Control Change

If you’re driving around Northwest Tucson frequently it’s likely that you pass by the Oracle & Ina intersection at least occasionally. As of today a significant traffic control change has taken effect. Motorists heading both eastbound & westbound on Ina Road will no longer be able to turn left onto Oracle Rd. Instead you’ll now have to cross Oracle and a new traffic control signal allows you to make a U-turn on Ina and head back to Oracle for a right hand turn. This “indirect left” as it has come to be known is designed to relieve the congestion that’s at this intersection once it’s synchronized with new right hand turn merging lanes.

This intersection will be closely monitored to see what effect these design changes have on the congestion. Particularly bad has been the right hand turn onto Oracle heading northbound from Ina Road heading westbound. In the afternoon this right hand turn has backed up as long as 3/4 of a mile. Hopefully the changes provide some relief to Tucson motorists and don’t cause too much confusion as people discover the control change. Other indirect turn lanes will be installed on Grant Road as part of its renovation project.
