ADOT project costs $45 million, to be complete in 18 months

Jesse Gutierrez, District Engineer for ADOT, provided a brief project overview to Superior Town Council members regarding the ADOT Project Expansion of US Highway 60, Silver King Section at last week’s meeting.

Gutierrez shared that ADOT is aware of the public’s concerns regarding safety, increased traffic flow, pedestrian crossing concerns and other issues. Gutierrez would like to keep communication open while the project moves forward. This is one of the largest district projects in years, potentially generating additional tax dollars, housing, employment and opportunities for new funds for the Town. The $45 million project, which may start in late fall of 2014, will take approximately 18 months to complete.
