Sunset Road -- Silverbell Road to Interstate 10

The project included a new 3-lane, multi-modal arterial roadway and a new 720' bridge across the Santa Cruz River. The project addressed off-site overland cross drainage, with a roadside channel designed for conveyance. Check dams were added to the channel to enhance the landscape experience by harvesting runoff for irrigation. The underlying geology was conducive to evaluating the influence of pore water pressure during storm events allowing for shorter drilled shafts and a savings of approximately 1 million dollars.
