Tangerine Road Expansion

Continued growth throughout the Marana & Oro Valley communities in neighborhoods like Maracay’s Center Pointe Vistoso and Pulte’s Casa Sevilla do bring along with it increased traffic volume. One stretch of road in particular which has become increasingly crowded is Tangerine Road. While Oro Valley had previously expanded much of its portion between Oracle & La Canada many years ago, the corridor further west all the way to the freeway has remained only two lanes. Thankfully expansion of this section is finally coming and is funded as part of the 2006 Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) plan approved by voters. Final design work has concluded for the initial improvements between Twin Peaks/Dove Mountain and La Canada & construction has now officially begun. The remaining section out to I-10 is set for some time between 2022 – 2026. This project is unique in that it’s a collaborative effort between multiple jurisdictions including the RTA, Town of Marana, Pima County & Oro Valley.

Among the many benefits this project brings are: four lanes of travel, wide bike lanes, wildlife corridors, pedestrian paths, turn lanes, and eliminating road dips. All of these facets provide for safer travel and the elimination of the roadway dips means there will be no road closures during storms. Of course the expansion of the pedestrian paths will also be exciting for runners, walkers, and bikers who now can link to existing paths on Dove Mountain & Twin Peaks on the west side to the Tangerine paths that stop currently at La Canada. Most of the road improvements will be curbed desert parkway style like the existing Tangerine corridor in Oro Valley.
