91st Avenue Improvements

The City of Glendale provided infrastructure improvements surrounding the Cardinals Stadium site. Hunter Contracting Co. (Hunter) constructed 4,500 linear feet of the new Bethany Home Road and widened two miles of 91st Avenue to six lanes. The scope included: widening and overlaying the existing roadway, full curb and gutter sections, landscaping, lights, water, sewer, storm drain, extending an 18-inch PVC effluent waterline, reclaimed water, and extensive SRP irrigation improvements for this time-sensitive project to accommodate the tight schedule related to the Cardinals’ stadium grand opening.

Hunter also constructed the Glendale Youth Sports Complex, a 14-acre multipurpose youth field for football and soccer and sports, lighting a 6,000 vehicle overflow parking lot. The scope included a multipurpose building to house restrooms, concessions, and storage.

Hunter provided design phase assistance for constructing the new section of Bethany Home Road and improvements to 91st Avenue. Using Value Engineering, Hunter redesigned the alignment of the pipe to avoid two canal crossings with a cost savings of $547,920 and was able to complete the project ahead of schedule.
