Oro Valley Roundabout

TUCSON, Ariz. - Oro Valley Town Manager Mary Jacobs is moving forward with a new roundabout at the intersection of Moore and La Cañada Roads to improve traffic flow and safety.

Construction will start summer 2019 and is expected to take about nine months to complete.

More than 1,600 people weighed in on this decision late last year, with a slight preference to a roundabout installation.

Both the town's engineer and engineering consultant say it is the safer option.
