Oro Valley and the Pima Association of Governments are celebrating the completion of the Lambert Lane Improvement Project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The event starts at 8 a.m. June 21 west of the entrance to Cañada del Oro Riverfront Park, 51 W. Lambert Lane.

In the $10.7 million project, workers widened West Lambert Lane to four lanes from North La Cañada Drive to North Pusch View Lane. The project also added six-feet-wide bike lanes and six-feet-wide sidewalks, as well as 10-feet-wide raised, landscaped medians. There's also a multi-use path.

“The Lambert Lane Improvement Project is complete,” Mayor Satish I. Hiremath said in a news release. “On behalf of the Town Council, we would like to thank our residents and visitors for their patience while we made significant improvements to Lambert Lane. In addition to increased vehicle capacity, pedestrians and cyclists can now enjoy sidewalks and multi-use paths that provide safety and connectivity with the town’s extensive trail network.”
