A construction of a new Loop 202 Freeway

It was announced that Fluor Consortium became responsible for the fulfillment of the initiative developed by the Arizona Transportation Department. The company was selected to build a new highway called Loop 202 South Mountain. The firm became a winner of the bid offered by ADOT. It was the first build & maintain project initiated by ADOT.

Not just Fluor but also several other companies became accountable for the highway construction. Their list includes:

  • Parsons Brinckerhof
  • DBi Services
  • Connect 202 Partners
  • Granite Construction, etc.

The representatives of Connect 202 Partners hope that they are able to provide efficient and cost-effective solutions for ADOT.

As for the construction itself, it will include the building of 22 miles of a new highway, which will have four lanes – one for high-occupancy vehicles and 3 for the general usage.

The building of the new highway started in 2016. The construction deadline is scheduled for 2020. In accordance with the contract, Fluor is to maintain the highway for over 20 years under the control of ADOT.

The highway is planned as an addition to the Phoenix transportation system. It is necessary to link the east and west valleys. Besides, it is a nice opportunity to make other freeways and streets more relieved.

The partners are currently making progress in the design & construction of the highway. It is vital to know the information concerning the project, as, during the construction, some of the roads might be temporarily closed.
