A large WDG project, Downtown Links, is nearing construction! The Tucson Daily Star has a good overview of the project in today’s paper (link below). For those of you looking for alternate routes around downtown, a solution is near. Downtown links will connect Aviation Parkway to the I-10 via St. Mary’s Rd. WDG has been a part of the downtown links project for many years and is looking forward to the construction of the largest phase of the project. WDG is especially excited about the deck plaza, a small park that will be built on 9th Ave, over 6th St. This will be the first deck park in Tucson! Some readers may be familiar with the deck park in Phoenix, which is on top of the Papago Freeway Tunnel. Our deck park will be much smaller, but is also an innovative use of space above existing infrastructure.
Stay tuned for more updates during the construction process.
