Indian Bend Road Improvements

This multiple award-winning project is located on a highly-visible and heavily-traveled road that is an access point for major retail and includes high-volume events and daily commuter traffic. This one-mile roadway improvement project was constructed while providing high-profile businesses and residential traffic access throughout the construction period. This project required the rapid mobilization of several crews while meeting a very rigid schedule. Using flexible phasing planning, Hunter Contracting Co. successfully worked through a very challenging utility relocation and an accelerated schedule that saved time for the community.
