Partnering for Success
on the South Mountain Freeway Project

Connect 202 Partners was selected by ADOT as the preferred bidder on the $1.9 billion design-build-maintain contract for the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway Project.

Fluor, Granite, and Ames, together with leading highway maintenance services contractor, DBi Services, have formed a team that combines local, national, and international highway design-build and maintenance experience to deliver this first-of-a-kind public-private partnership (P3) for the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). As design-builder, Fluor, Granite, and Ames are three of the most successful design-build highway contractors in the United States. All three firms have partnered together in the past and are jointly executing major transportation projects across the United States. The Fluor, Granite, Ames partnership has achieved much success by leveraging existing professional relationships, shared knowledge, established work processes, familiar project management systems, best practices, and mutual trust.

The team has selected Parsons Brinckerhoff, a recognized global leader in infrastructure design, to be the lead engineering firm for the project. Together with a strong locally based design team, including AZTEC Engineering Group, Stanley Consultants, and AMEC, the team possesses unrivaled ADOT design expertise.

Fluor and DBi Services will be jointly responsible for ongoing highway maintenance activities and any necessary capital improvements. Fluor and DBi Services are currently teamed in pursuit of other major P3 highway projects. Through these joint pursuits, our organizations have a common set of work processes for highway maintenance.
