When traveling in Arizona its best to be aware of how roads change on you.
Read what Arizona Daily Star's reporter Joe Ferguson has to say about the Tucson streets.
While it might seem like half of the city streets are falling apart, and the other half are under construction, Downtown Tucson is enjoying a renaissance, and there are plenty of places to shop, eat, drink and enjoy live music.
Remember, some intersections lead with left turns, some are at the end of a green light. And along a portion of Speedway, the city is experimenting with new arrows that are more of a lagging left turn arrow but are tied to pedestrian crosswalks.
Tucson also is experimenting with “Michigan Left” turns. These indirect left-hand turns require drivers on Grant Road to go through the intersection to the next stoplight — one block down — where they can make a U-turn, then go back to the intersection you wanted to turn at in the first place to make a right turn.
No car? No problem. The Tucson Streetcar — called Sun Link — is one of the best ways to travel between campus and downtown.
