The four-year project is the first major urban freeway reconstruction project in Maricopa County, Arizona, U.S.
Iteris announced that it has been awarded contracts for a total of $3.5M by the Pulice-FNF-Flatiron Joint Venture, a design-build joint-venture team, or DBJV, for its role in the Arizona Department of Transportation's I-10 Broadway Curve Improvement Project, which aims to improve one of the busiest freeway segments in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
The four-year project, which will reconstruct an 11-mile segment of Interstate 10 spanning the cities of Phoenix, Tempe, and Chandler, and the town of Guadalupe, is the first major urban freeway reconstruction project in Maricopa County, according to ADOT.
The I-10 Broadway Curve is one of the most heavily traveled freeway segments in the state, providing connectivity from Downtown Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport to the southeast Valley and southern Arizona.
Under the terms of the contract, Iteris will provide the DBJV with design services, two software-as-a-service solutions and its congestion management managed service.
The combination of Iteris' SaaS solutions and managed service will enable the DBJV to manage and minimize construction impacts, and increase safety and mobility for 300,000 daily metro Phoenix road users during the construction phase of the $615M project. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid to late 2021 and is expected to take up to four years to complete.
