FERN VALLEY INTERCHANGE
Summer of bridge construction, demolition
Commuters transitioned to the first half of the new Bear Creek Bridge earlier this month when prime contractor Hamilton Construction reached another major construction milestone on the $72 million Fern Valley Interchange project at Interstate 5 Exit 24.
The project addresses traffic congestion that is especially severe in and around Phoenixâ€™s I-5 interchange during morning and evening commutes. Existing and proposed development along the east side of I-5 in Phoenix had reduced the capacity and created safety issues at the interchange.
