A contract worth $361,945 between Scottsdale and Achen-Gardner Construction, LLC for pre-construction phase services for the Raintree Drive Extension Project from Scottsdale to Hayden roads has been approved.
On Feb. 19, the Scottsdale City Council approved on consent a resolution authorizing a Construction Manager at Risk contract for the project.
The Raintree Drive Extension will provide a direct connection between the State Route Loop 101 Freeway and Scottsdale Road, according to the city’s website.
This extension will simplify the route from Hayden Road to Scottsdale Road and help to relieve some of the traffic congestion experienced on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard. In addition, roundabouts are planned at three intersections along the route.
