Connect 202 Partners, LLC is providing design, construction and 30 years of maintenance services for the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway. This project is the first freeway project procured under Arizona’s public-private- partnership (P3) statute and ADOT’s first design-build-maintain project ever. The $1.77 billion project is the largest highway project in the state’s history and funded by a combination of Regional Area Road Fund revenues, Highway User Revenue Fund revenues and federal funds dedicated to the Maricopa County region and ADOT.
The project includes 22 miles of new freeway, 4.5 miles of improvements to I-10, 40 bridges, a pedestrian bridge, 13 interchanges including 2 half diverging diamonds, 11 miles of sound walls, and a 6-mile shared use path. Completion is scheduled for late 2019.
