TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Corporation Commission has approved a major construction project that will help remove a traffic bottleneck on Tucson’s northwest side.

The $120 million project approved Tuesday will remove the current Union Pacific railroad at-grade crossing at Ina Road and replace it with a crossing that will have Ina Road pass over both the railroad tracks and Interstate 10.

According to the commission, I-10 will be lowered to ground level at Ina Road and widened to eight lanes, while Ina Road will be rebuilt as a six-lane road with turn lanes, bicycle lanes and sidewalks.

The commission says the upgrades to the Ina Road crossings is part of a larger project extending from east of Ruthrauff Road to east of Prince Road.

The commission’s duties include oversight of railroad safety.
