Carefree Highway, Black Canyon Parkway & Major Collectors
The project entailed roadway designs for Carefree Highway, the arterial roadway of Black Canyon Parkway, and 3-1/2 miles of major collector improvements as part of the 1,100 acre Tramonto Master Planned Community. Work included master planning, preliminary and final engineering, roadway infrastructure, storm drain and bank stabilization design and a submittal to FEMA for removal of approximately 90 acres of land from the 100-year floodplain. Challenges to this project included integrating roadway infrastructure while minimizing the impact to natural drainage corridors.
