The Centennial Way Project transformed Washington Street and the Arizona Capitol Mall entrance into a beautiful streetscape for residents and visitors to celebrate Arizona’s 100th birthday (February 14, 2012) as well as the state’s history and culture. In just 77 weeks, the Achen-Gardner Design-Build Team met federal requirements; completed environmental and state historic preservation clearances; obtained rights-of-way, easements, and permits; completed design; and constructed 1.25 miles of roadway civil infrastructure and streetscape improvements. The project team maximized the design-build process by balancing quality, quantity, and budget goals and ensuring the timely completion of improvements to this historic corridor.
