TDOT Policy 30.35: Roadside Memorials

Roadside Memorials (crosses, candles, flowers) may be left in place within the City of Tucson’s rights-of-way as long as they are well maintained by others and do not pose a safety hazard or sight visibility issue. Memorials that do pose an issue, should be moved to accommodate visibility and safe passage, but not removed.

Site visibility questions should be directed to the Traffic Engineering Division of the Department of Transportation.

Those memorials that fall within an improvement area should be placed out of harms way during construction but as close as feasible to the original location. Families or loved ones should be contacted if at all possible when memorials must be moved or removed by Streets and Traffic Maintenance Division.
