Sundt/Kiewit Win AGC Build Arizona Award

TUCSON, AZ — Sundt Construction, Inc. and its joint venture partner Kiewit were recently awarded the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) Arizona Chapter’s Build Arizona award for its work on the Ina Road Traffic Interchange.

“Sundt is extremely grateful to receive such a prestigious award,” said Ryan Cannon, Sundt Project Manager. “Our partnership with ADOT (Arizona Department of Transportation) was essential to the outcome of the project. It’s a true example of how planning, attention to safety and quality and a focus on partnering can result in a successful project.”

The construction manager at risk project included reconstruction of the interchange at Ina Road as a precast concrete bridge overpass to I-10. It also included several street improvements, channel construction, drainage, retaining walls, signals, lighting and utility relocation.

The joint venture team began work in January 2017 to elevate the Ina Road interchange, widen I-10 and Ina Road and replace the existing Santa Cruz River Bridge. The improved infrastructure helps reduce delays and increase safety for the nearly 25,000 drivers who use the interchange every day.

Of the various improvements made, the most notable is the bridge, which takes traffic over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and reduces delays on a heavily used four-lane road. Railroad crossings were previously at street level, causing frequent backups for daily drivers. Now drivers have safer, faster access to and from the interstate.
