UPDATE (4:17 p.m., July 9):

The intersection of Ina Road and Shannon Road will reopen at 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, according to a news release from Pima County Department of Transportation.

Ina Road, east and west, will open first, according to the news release, following by Shannon Road, north and south.

Westbound Ina Road will continue to have lane restrictions so that Tucson Electric Power can complete underground work between Mona Lisa Road and Camino de la Tierra, the news release said.

The work will continue for 4-5 days.


A severe monsoon thunderstorm left one Northside intersection, Ina Road and Shannon Road, closed for several days due to damaged power lines.

Tucson Electric Power (TEP) field crews replaced all 14 damaged wooden poles with steel poles. Crews will continue working on the repairs for the rest of the week. This will keep Ina Road closed between North Camino de la Tierra and North Mona Lisa Road.

A restaurant close to the damage, Trident Grill IV, closed down when the storm hit. Now, employees are guiding customers through a detour to make sure they arrive safely.

“I just have to tell them the only entrance is through Shannon and you can get there if you go through Shannon, but that’s kind of the only way you’re allowed in," Brown said. "When it first happened, they weren’t letting anyone in or out of the parking lot.”

TEP tells me it’s unclear when the intersection will reopen, but will continue coordinating with law enforcement and transportation officials.
