Progress on new I-17/Cordes Junction interchange continues

Just last month we blogged about a project that’s under way on I-17 and SR 69 in Cordes Junction.

So, maybe you’re wondering why we’re bringing it up again so soon …

Well, we’re blogging about it today because we’ve got an awesome new video (see above) that details the entire project and shows footage from January when crews installed some precast girders – a milestone in the construction.

When all the work is complete – around summer 2013 – motorists are going to have a much easier time maneuvering the interchange that sits halfway between Phoenix and Flagstaff. That’s because the project includes:

  • New bridges on SR 69 
  • The removal of the outdated on- and off-ramps 
  • A new I-17 interchange 
  • Two new bridges and ramps built over I-17 to connect with SR 69 
  • The construction of a new Arcosanti Road, along with the realignment of Copper Star Road and Stagecoach Trail. 

“I think this is going to be a major center for the folks around here and also for the state of Arizona,” Cordes Junction business owner Jerry Schultz says in the video above.

For more information on the new interchange, including construction detours, visit the project Web page.
