Project Status Update
The final design of the 5-mile segment from Dove Mountain Blvd/Twin Peaks Rd to La Cañada Dr is underway with completion of design scheduled for the fall of 2015.
The project team has chosen to utilize the Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) approach to construction which combines the efforts of the design engineering team, the owner and the contractor to work together to complete the improvements. This results in the roadway construction occurring earlier in the process than the more traditional design-bid-build approach, with contractor input on constructability. The Town of Marana has had extreme success utilizing the CMAR delivery method in the past on such projects as Twin Peaks Road, Linda Vista to Tangerine Road; Silverbell Road, Cortaro Road to Ina Road and Thornydale Road, CDO River to Orange Grove Road. The CMAR contractor selected for this project is the Tangerine Corridor Constructors – a Granite Construction – Borderland Construction joint venture. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2016. Representatives of the selected contractor will be at the Open House.
This is a project of the Regional Transportation Authority. The voter-approved, $2.1 billion RTA plan will be implemented through 2026. Details about the full plan are available at www.RTAmobility.com. The Regional Transportation Authority has a nine-member board with representatives from local, state and tribal governments. This project will be managed by The Town of Marana, The Town of Oro Valley, Pima County and the RTA.
