About the Lambert Lane Project
The Lambert Lane Phase II Project improved safety and visibility along Lambert Lane, from West Lambert Lane Park to La Cañada Drive, by widening the roadway to four lanes with raised medians and turn lanes, including multi-modal enhancements, curbs and landscaping. The work was performed by Granite Construction, Inc., and the project was funded by the Pima Association of Governments.
Other project details include: sidewalks, a multi-use pedestrian pathway, retaining walls, drainage culverts, channel facilities, catch basins, utility relocations, earthwork, aggregate base and asphaltic concrete, signage, pavement markings, traffic signal upgrade and replacement, seeding and vegetation transplanting.

Phase I of the Lambert Lane project was completed in the spring of 2013, and included similar improvements along the section of Lambert, from La Cañada Drive to Pusch View Lane. Click here for more information.
