Three public-private partnership groups have been short-listed by Arizona Department of Transportation for the contract to design, build and maintain the 22-mile final leg of Loop 202.
ADOT reviewed proposals for the freeway project over the winter while it awaited the final approvals from the Federal Highway Administration to build the most expensive freeway segment in Arizona history.
South Mountain Development Group, Connect 202 Partners and South Mountain Mobility Group are the three groups that will battle for the nearly $2 billion freeway connecting Interstate 10 at 59th Avenue in the West Valley to the I-10-Loop 202-Pecos Road interchange in the East Valley.
The construction value could go higher with Phoenix responsible for improvements to connect with 17 freeway interchanges in the city. Street Transportation Director Ray Dovalina said the city would want to coordinate its efforts with the freeway construction.
ADOT started down the road for a public-private partnership when an unsolicited proposal was submitted by the South Mountain Development Group – one of the three finalists.
The proposal from Kiewit Development Co. and Kiewit Infrastructure West Co., Sundt Construction Inc. and Parsons Transportation Group Inc. was to design-build-finance the freeway. The proposal marked the first time ADOT ever received an unsolicited bid on a project.
The group said in its proposal that the freeway was needed now and must be accelerated.
ADOT, which has been nationally recognized for innovating highway construction delivery programs, reviewed the idea and came back with the design-build-maintain concept. At the time, the highway department said it had the funding it needed from Maricopa County’s voter-approved transportation sales tax and a sale of tax-exempt bonds.
Adding the maintenance component is new for Arizona, and transportation officials believe that it results in a better-built freeway if the contracting team also has to maintain the road for 30 years.
A final request for proposals will be distributed to the three groups this spring, ADOT said, and the contract for the freeway will be issued by the end of the year. The project will take four years to complete.
