Scottsdale Road Improvements:
Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard to Thompson Peak Parkway

Hunter Contracting Co. completed road improvements to increase Scottsdale Road to six full lanes from Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard to Thompson Peak Parkway, widening the bridge over Central Arizona Project’s Main Canal, including ADOT coordination.  The work scope included all water, sewer, storm drain lines, and installed conduits for APS, Qwest, and Cox relocations. Hunter constructed a new intersection at Scottsdale Road and Mayo Boulevard. Cast-in-place concrete box culverts were constructed in multiple phases to provide for major drainage crossings underneath Scottsdale Road. Value engineering of box culverts into Con-ArchTM concrete arch structures provided cost savings and an aesthetically pleasing alternative. The project location also required extensive phasing plans and traffic planning to meet the needs of the high-profile resorts and auto dealerships bordering the project limits.
