When renovating a roadway in one of the Valley’s most high-dollar and aesthetically focused areas, the actual laying of asphalt is arguably the simplest component of the process. Success and lasting value lie in detailed planning and active communication among all stakeholders at every step.
In Paradise Valley, the challenge was to remake 56th Street between McDonald and Lincoln drives from worn down residential side street into a highly functional but safe connector between the two endpoints.
The Town of Paradise Valley used the project as the impetus to create new “Iconic Visually Significant Corridor” guidelines to serve as the groundwork for future roadway development in the area.
