Queen Creek’s Rittenhouse Road Project wins award

Posted

The town of Queen Creek recently won an American Council of Engineering Companies, Arizona Chapter, Honor Award for the Rittenhouse Road Project from Ocotillo to Riggs roads. 

This road improvement project widened approximately 2.8 miles to four travel lanes, realigned the Cloud Road intersection, constructed bike lanes, exclusive right-turn lanes, upgraded four traffic signals, and created new curb and gutter, sidewalk and driveway entrances.

“This large-scale undertaking had a number of unique aspects, including the undergrounding of electrical power and telecommunication lines, widening a private at-grade railroad spur crossing, replacing irrigation pipelines, and demolishing a 50-year-old concrete girder bridge and constructing a new 11-barrel, cast-in-place concrete box culvert crossing the Queen Creek Wash,” said Capital Improvements Department Director Dave Lipinski. “Senior Project Manager Charlene Montgomery did an amazing job in delivering this $18.2 million project. This is a great recognition of her professionalism and skills.”

This multifaceted project included coordination with major stakeholders from private owners, several homeowner associations, the Maricopa County Department of Transportation, Flood Control District of Maricopa County, Arizona Corporation Commission, Union Pacific Railroad, Cox Communications, Queen Creek Irrigation District and Salt River Project.
