City of Mesa streets get $4.5M improvements

The Phoenix office of Skanska has started work on improvements to Broadway Road in Mesa, Ariz., from Power Road to Sossaman Road.
The $4.5 million street and utility improvements project for the City of Mesa includes extensive storm drain and potable water upgrades to the existing system, widening an older roadway to accommodate heavier traffic and improved aesthetics.
“Public outreach is paramount when doing capital improvement projects of this magnitude. We have relied heavily on Skanska to notify residents when construction will affect their daily living. Their proactive approach regarding any changes has been a great asset to the Broadway Road project,” said Jaime Otter, Marketing Communications Specialist II, City of Mesa.
“We credit our team and partners with working together to keep this important project on schedule,” said Skanska’s Phoenix Civil Construction Division Manager Chris Halpin. “With these sorts of projects, we know that the end users – Mesa residents – are the ones that will truly benefit from these improvements and we are working to support them and the entire community.”
In July 2013, Skanska, which is active in both the building and civil construction markets, announced it had moved its building operations to 4742 North 24th Street in Phoenix, just south of Camelback Road. Skanska’s civil construction unit, formerly located in Peoria, Ariz., has co-located with the building group at the 24th Street location.
