Arizona's Largest Single Freeway Project is up for an America's Transportation Award!

Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway is a finalist for the national Grand Prize and the People's Choice Award. The Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway (pictured above) connects the east and west valleys of the Phoenix metropolitan area and offers much-needed, greater mobility along the city’s southwest quadrant. By using a design-build-maintain agreement, the freeway opened three years earlier than if it had been built using a traditional approach, with a cost savings of more than $100 million.

Voting is closed now, but the winners will be announced at the AASHTO Virtual Annual Meeting on Nov. 9.
