TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Streetcar construction has allowed Congress Street from Toole Avenue to Scott Avenue to reopen to bicyclists and motorists.

It has opened to a single westbound lane, which will allow access to businesses along that stretch of Congress.

There is still a detour route in place on Toole Avenue for motorists wanting to access the west side of downtown.

Construction crews have also completed underground utility work, installed concrete-embedded rail, paved and reopened roadways in the following areas:

  • Second Street between Park Avenue
  • Palm Drive between Highland and Cherry Avenues
  • University Boulevard between Tyndall Avenue and Third Avenue
  • Fourth Avenue from University Boulevard to Seventh Street
