Civiltec was recently recognized by the Arizona Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) for its renovation of Iron Springs Road. The road is a vital connector between Prescott and Skull Valley, and a highly used route for interstate traffic between California and Arizona. The project called for full roadway reconstruction and widening from 24 feet to 40 feet. Civiltec had to contend with the road’s severe edge breakdown, ‘alligator cracking’ and severe oxidation.
Civiltec completed the design plans, survey, specifications, estimates and construction administration for the project, which included superelevated curves, drainage, signage and striping, retaining wall, and barrier design. Due to the hilly terrain, this 5.4-mile stretch of Iron Springs Road also required seismic testing to ensure additional slope stability.

Arizona APWA concluded, “This project was constructed within the allotted time and budget, by a strong partnering relationship between Yavapai County Public Works Department, Civiltec, and Asphalt Paving and Supply.” Click here to read the entire write-up in the Newsletter’s “Project Spotlight” section.
