Granite has secured a contract worth approximately $15m from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) for pavement rehabilitation and bridge deck repair.

Funded by Federal Highway Administration and ADOT, the project will see improvement of an almost 10-mile stretch of Interstate 10 (I-10) in Tucson, Arizona.

This contract is expected to be included in Granite’s fourth quarter CAP.

The pavement rehabilitation project is to be carried out in Pima County, on I-10 within Tucson city limits, commencing at milepost 262.4 and extending east along I-10 to milepost 272.

Under the scope of work, Granite will be responsible for removal of existing asphaltic concrete friction course (ACFC) by milling and replacing with new asphalt-rubber concrete friction course (AR-ACFC), placing crack seal and fog coat on the shoulders, building guardrail, bridge deck repair and installing conduit, traffic signs, pavement markings, and highway lighting.

The company’s Arizona Swan plant will deliver around 29,000t of hot mix asphalt to the project, including 40 shifts of night paving which will boost daily plant production.

Granite area manager Anthony Alfonso said: “We have a longstanding relationship with ADOT, and this project will build on our current work with the organisation.

“The project team just completed two ADOT resurfacing projects in Q3 2022.”

The project is expected to commence December 2022 and to be completed in August 2023.
