SCE ENGINEERING PERFORMS ANALYSIS TO SAVE $2.8 MILLION ON ARIZONA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION PROJECT
Currently, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) is designing improvements for Interstate 10 (I10), between Ina Road and Ruthrauff Road. The proposed improvements will include 3.6 miles of eight lanes of mainline Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP) pavement and four new I10 mainline bridges over the Rillito Creek and Cañada Del Oro (CDO) Wash which are major regional ephemeral streams (i.e., streams that do not experience flows except during flood events).
SCE Engineering (SCE) recently completed the geotechnical engineering for the project. As part of the geotechnical engineering, SCE performed two types of specialized analyses that SCE personnel had successfully implemented for Pima County and other projects but upon ADOT’s request were performed for the first time on an ADOT project.
We are proud to announce that our
own Edie Griffith-Mettey, P.E. has been awarded the 2020 Southern Arizona Engineer of the Year by the Arizona Society of Professional Engineers.
