4th Ave. Underpass Opening

After 2 ½ years of construction, the new 4th Ave. Underpass opened on Tucson's birthday, reconnecting the University and the 4th Avenue merchants with downtown. Mayor Walkup hosted the ceremony. The festivities were complete with a bagpipers procession preceeding a trolley car that broke through the grand reopening ribbon. That was followed by a parade of vintage automobiles, one carrying Cele Peterson, the founder of the annual Tucson Birthday Celebration.
