Cactus Forest Loop construction project
This project is expected to last from Tuesday, April 1 through Friday, April 4 from 6am to 5pm. Expect delays up to 15 minutes during the construction period.
The Loop Road will be closed on Thursday (4/3) and Friday (4/4) from 5am to 8am.
The week of April 7, work crews will return for road striping, however traffic should not be affected.
Work includes creating a wider road shoulder at the first corner of the Loop Drive and smoothing out the transition from the corner into the wash crossing
We appreciate everyone planning ahead, and slowing down for work crews. For additional information or questions about the project email Andy L. Fisher, Public Information Officer for Saguaro National Park or call 520 733 5139.
