FLORENCE — Some much-needed traffic relief will come to San Tan Valley.
Hunt Highway widening will resume in early September, following the awarding of a $16.7 million contract Wednesday morning at the Pinal County Board of Supervisors regular meeting.
Sunland Asphalt & Construction Inc. was the successful bidder on the contract to reconstruct and widen 2.5 miles of Hunt Highway to five lanes from Bella Vista to Magma roads. Sunland’s bid includes almost $1.1 million for contingencies, the supervisors were told.
