How Broadway expansion will impact businesses, homeowners (KGUN 9)
The city of Tucson is meeting with local businesses about how they will be impacted by the Broadway Boulevard Improvement Project. On Monday night city leaders, along with the consultant company Tierra Right of Way Services, met with a few dozen property owners to discuss the acquisition process. Beth Abramovitz with the Tucson Department of Transportation says up to 87 properties may be impacted by the expansion, but the city is working to reduce that number.

A new BikeHAWK is now ready for use by bicyclists and pedestrians trying to cross Broadway from Treat Avenue. BikeHAWKs are similar to HAWKs, but they have a few special features that make them easier for bicyclists to use. One feature is the easy-to-reach push button. Traditional HAWK buttons are located on the HAWK pole, within reach of pedestrians walking on the sidewalk. The Broadway/Treat BikeHAWK, however, has an additional push button that can be used by bicyclists while still seated. The BikeHAWK also has green striping that identifies a space in which bicyclists can cross separate from pedestrians. While the BikeHAWK will need to be modified/rebuilt during the corridor widening, the materials will be able to be re-used in the final design.
