This Pulice-led Joint Venture project completed 19 miles of improvements to the Red Mountain Freeway, with 13 miles of inside widening to accommodate a new HOV lane in both directions. In four specific areas, existing subgrade failure required full width roadway removal and replacement. Additionally, deep soil mixing was utilized to mitigate the future roadway settlement.
The final six miles constructed the addition of an exterior General Purpose Lane (GPL). The GPL work included the widening of four existing traffic interchanges, ramp removal and replacement to accommodate the new geometry, soundwalls, retaining walls, grading and PCCP placement.
The project schedule was fast tracked to minimize disruption to the traveling traveling public.
