New River Trail

Northern Avenue to Olive Avenue | Peoria, AZ


The City of Peoria used the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) On-Call Statewide and Local Government Project Design contract and selected Premier to complete preliminary and final engineering design to develop the Northern to Olive Avenues segment of the New River Trail system. This project used available Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) and Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) program funds. The project was administered by ADOT during design development and construction as a Local Public Agency (LPA) project in accordance with the ADOT LPA process.

Project scope included topographic survey and survey control, design concept report, geotechnical report and materials design report, hydraulic/hydrologic analysis of the New River Wash, drainage report, trail paving design, domestic water service design, storm-drain facilities design, signing & marking design, landscape and irrigation design, traffic control, trail lighting design, retaining wall design, and erosion and sediment control design.  Required clearances included utility, environmental, and right-of-way. Extensive coordination with Flood Control District of Maricopa County, Salt River Project, Arizona Public Service and the City of Peoria were essential elements to the success of this project.
