Category 2: The Rural Highways Merit Award, image of project SR 87 Segment E, Maricopa County, Arizona

SR 87 Segment E,
Maricopa County, Arizona

Designer:
Michael Baker, Jr., Inc., Phoenix, AZ

Contractor:
Ames Construction Inc., Phoenix, AZ

The State Route 87 was widened from two lanes to four lanes to serve as a major recreational route to northeastern Arizona. The primary benefit was the improved safety created by the divided north and southbound lanes handling traffic that has quadrupled since 1980. Design, safety, and environmental consideration in this project resulted in an award from the American Automobile Association.
