BUILDING A BETTER TOMORROW IN AZ, CA AND NM

Market demand for our products in Arizona, California and New Mexico continued to decline during 2010, impacting construction jobs that are the heart and soul of the economic engines in the states in which we do business. We continued to work hard on preserving jobs and improving efficiencies in our operations and worked together with our customers to advocate at the state and federal levels on their behalf (most of our customers are small businesses). We continue to partner with our customers on significant projects during the economic downturn, many of which include federal stimulus funding.

 

Featured below are a few of the most significant and/or important projects we worked on in 2010.

 

Arizona

 

Twin Peaks Traffic Interchange in Pima, AZ

 

The new Interchange is located on Interstate 10 (I-10) at exit 245 between the Avra Valley Road and Cortaro Road interchanges and will greatly reduce travel time in northwestern Pima County and increase safety by relieving traffic from other busy streets.

 

California

 

Contra Costa County I-680 Pavement Rehab and HOV Lane Extension

 

Project will focus on pavement replacement for a 12.8-mile segment from San Ramon to Danville. Damaged concrete slabs are being replaced with new concrete and the HOV lanes will be paved with rubberized asphalt.

 

San Bernardino County – I-210 Freeway Widening and Bridge Construction

 

Among other attributes, this project will add a mixed-flow lane and a carpool lane both northbound and southbound from just north of Interstate 10 (I-10) to State Route 210 and will build freeway connectors, auxiliary lanes, sound walls and retaining walls. Widening and realignment of the freeway will improve access to the west side of I-215 and overall mobility through the City of San Bernardino.

 

San Diego – Route Expansion

 

Project will add one lane in each direction in Oceanside, CA helping to ease traffic congestion on the heavily travelled route. About 30,000 vehicles travel the five-mile stretch daily, a figure that is expected to double by 2030. Will generate 3,300 jobs in the county and state.

 

New Mexico

 

University of New Mexico's Pit Renovation Albuquerque, New Mexico

 

UNM's famous basketball arena was gutted, rebuilt and opened on November 1, 2010 in time for its 2010-11 season. The new stadium includes a new state-of-the-art design, a wider concourse, 40 new luxury suites (expected to generate $20 million annual revenue) and a new clubhouse section. All construction was required to meet LEED silver level standards. To learn more about the project, go to: www.abqjournal.com.
