SR 74 – New River Road
As prime contractor on one of the first ARRA projects for the Arizona Department of Transportation our scope included the widening of a major highway (I-17), expansion of lanes on two bridges which involved a complex traffic control plan. An approach slab was poured, barrier walls were installed and retaining walls were built for the additional lanes. The contracted project schedule had a July 2010 completion which is ahead of schedule with an April finish, and had minimal public delays with no road closures.

US 93 & Hassayampa River Wickenburg, AZ
Description: Wickenburg Bypass, Wickenburg, AZ involved dewatering of groundwater with 28′ excavation for soil cement. In addition, borrow pits had water significantly higher than originally shown requiring a re-sequencing of the construction project to locate the aggregates within the project limits rather than external borrow sites stipulated in the project documents. This process was done while maintaining the master schedule. While drilling shafts 110 feet deep, two bridges built in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s were discovered. One was built out of wood piling which was used as a telegraph bridge. The other was built with rock and mortar and used for the usual form of travel in those days with horse and carriage. The Wickenburg Bypass is not only designed to detour traffic around Wickenburg, it also acts as a levy to take the town off the 50 year flood zone status and into the 100 year status.
- Prime Contractor for construction of 1.69 miles of new five lane roadway.
- Replacement of a bridge and raising of another over the Hassayampa River.
- Constructed a new bridge over Sols Wash.
Happy Valley Road at I-17
This project was the first round-a-bout constructed in the state. It crossed over I-17 on Happy Valley Road. The project was built as a temporary way to move cars coming and going to and from a major corporate park onto the freeway. This project created a lot of controversy on its ease of use. People either really like it or they really don’t.
First round-a-bout on a major arterial road in Arizona.
