PHOENIX – The developer of Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway, will pick up the cost of repairing spots next to some West Valley interchanges where the surface asphalt has deteriorated.
The developer, Connect 202 Partners, is being held accountable for repairing the problem which is occurring where the rubberized asphalt surface layer meets the concrete surfaces of overpasses.
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, the rubberized asphalt surface may not have been applied at sufficient thickness in these spots or could have been applied at too low a temperature to set properly.
Connect 202 Partners will repair these spots this spring, when warmer temperatures make paving possible.
Under the design-build-maintain contract behind the South Mountain Freeway, Connect 202 Partners will provide maintenance for 30 years.
