Higley Road and Williams Field Road Improvements

This project was a reconstruction of one of the last unimproved intersections at Higley Road, a major arterial roadway. Controversial right-of-way acquisition, coupled with heavy traffic, the nearby Williams Field High School, Higley Elementary and Middle School, and HUSD school bus depot, provided a challenging intersection improvement project. The project involved multiple stakeholders, Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR), Roosevelt Water Conservation District (RWCD), Salt River Project (SRP), CenturyLink, Southwest Gas, and Cox, among others. Hunter Contracting Co. coordinated with all the stakeholders, which enabled the project's smooth completion. Necessary private utility relocations, both above and underground, warranted intense preconstruction phase analysis of multiple cost models to offer the Town the best design alternatives. This analysis enabled maximization of the available funds to construct the best, and long-term value features the Town is committed to providing when “Building the Future.”
