Roadway Design & Construction
Services Provided: Civil Engineering, Land Planning, Storm Water Management, Landscape architecture
Project Description: New roadway design and construction of a four lane divided road with the design of an additional two lanes for future use. In an effort to reduce grading in the hillside areas, a split of the northbound and southbound around a small hill is intended to enhance the driving experience and be sensitive to the natural character of the land. CVL had to coordinate with multiple disciplines and agencies, including the City of Goodyear, Maricopa County Flood Control, Maricopa Department of Transportation, Army Corp. of Engineers, Arizona Game and Fish, the bridge consultants, El Paso Gas, Buckeye Irrigation district, and the railroad.
• The removal and installation of a new 16“ high pressure gas line

• Coordination with Maricopa County Flood Control on the bridge abutments
• 404 permits with the Army Corp. of Engineers
