Monroe Avenue Beautification Roadway Reconstruction


City of Buckeye Public Works


Buckeye, Arizona


Design Build

Date Completed

December 2014

The Banicki JOC Division delivered this JOC work order under a Design-Build teaming agreement with Kimley-Horn. The project included work on 3 intersections in downtown Buckeye (5th, 6th and 7th Streets crossing Monroe Avenue). The improvements consisted of the installation of landscaping bump outs and improvements to the existing sidewalks and curb ramps. The intersection of 6th Street and Monroe Avenue received decorative treatments such as stamped asphalt, new pavement markings and minor landscaping within the bump outs. The Banicki JOC Division worked with lead design firm Kimley-Horn to research and obtain existing roadway, water, sewer and drainage as built plans and drainage reports for the roadway segment.

Our JOC Division worked with the City to evaluate the use of innovative stamped asphalt in lieu of concrete for key, high volume crosswalk locations. Banicki staff provided test samples and wear data to support the use of this methodology and utilized field crews that had specific experience in stamped asphalt installation. Banicki focused on working with City staff to identify and prioritize project needs during the preconstruction phase, providing value and constructability analysis as well as materials evaluations that allowed the project to meet both the goals of the City as well as the budget identified for the scope of work.
