ACS Group, through its subsidiaries Pulice Construction and Flatiron, has been selected by the Arizona Department of Transportation for the design and construction of the I-10 Broadway Project in Arizona, therefore reinforcing its presence in this State and in The United States. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) has announced the selection of the Pulice-FNF-Flatiron Joint Venture as the preferred developer of the Interstate 10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project, the state’s first major urban freeway reconstruction project. The estimated programmed amount for the construction project is in the range of $600 million, though final cost will be determined during the negotiation process. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid- to late-2021 and take up to four years to complete the 11-mile section of I-10 between the I-17 “Split” interchange and the Loop 202 Santan and South Mountain freeways in the cities of Phoenix, Chandler and Tempe and the town of Guadalupe.

Planned improvements include:

⊲ Widening I-10 to six general purpose lanes and two HOV lanes between 24th Street and US 60
⊲ Building a collector-distributor road system between Baseline Road and 40th Street to separate local and through traffic on I-10
⊲ Adding a fourth general purpose lane on I-10 from US 60 to Ray Road and keeping the HOV lane
⊲ Modifying I-10 connections at SR 143, Broadway Road and US 60 to improve traffic flow and safety
⊲ Replacing ramps at I-10 interchanges at SR 143 and US 60 with new ramps, including new bridges
⊲ Adding three pedestrian bridges to connect communities.

The project is consistent with ACS Group strategy to secure contracts with a balanced risk profile and to strengthen local presence with well-known clients with proven successful past experience. The joint venture brings together a perfect combination of extensive local experience in complex highway construction as well as expertise in large-scale design-build projects.
