Tempe, in conjunction with other valley cities, posts its daily street restrictions affecting 50% or more of an arterial street (like Rural Road or Southern Avenue) along with full closures of an arterial or collector street on www.az511.gov

Below is information about any special events in Tempe that cause street restrictions or bus detours. Only current events affecting a street or bus route will be posted. Click here to view all Valley Metro bus detours.  


University Drive between Ash and Mill avenues restricted

METRO will survey the downtown Tempe corridor to identify locations of underground utilities and investigate the soil conditions under the future streetcar line. This work is necessary to help develop the project’s design.

Work will start the week of May 7 on University Drive between Ash and Mill avenues.

During the work, please expect intermittent traffic restrictions. This work generally involves one truck with cones and/or a directional arrow directing traffic around the work zone. The work will occur during daytime hours. In addition, the contractor will coordinate with the City of Tempe to minimize traffic disruption during any special events in the corridor.
