Structures

Bridges

SR 101L (Shea Blvd to SR 202L), Red Mountain (ADOT)

As a subconsultant, Ethos worked on the design of this project which widened five miles of freeway to accommodate additional general-purpose lanes. Ethos provided wall solutions to address widening of retaining walls in close proximity to existing walls and footings. Structural details for supports of traffic signs, landscape, roadway and drainage structures were provided.

SR202L GP Lanes (SR101L to Broadway Road), Red Mountain FWY (ADOT)

Ethos worked on the design of this 109-million-dollar design-build project which widened five miles of freeway from SR101L to Gilbert Road to accommodate additional general purpose lanes. The design included 28 retaining walls and three overhang slabs. Through coordination with the design team and multiple agencies, Ethos’ design reduced the overall cost of the project associated with the walls and overhang slabs.

SR 202L South Mountain Freeway, Phoenix, AZ (ADOT)

Ethos is currently working on the largest project in the history of ADOT that provides 22 miles of new freeway. As part of the overall involvement of our company in this project, our structures team designed  six bridge structures along the SR202L alignment as well as the design of two large drainage structures for the crossing of the SR202L over the Laveen Area Conveyance Channel. Our team also prepared wall and roadway details used project wide.

Nevitt Park Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge; Phoenix, AZ (City of Phoenix)

As prime consultant, Ethos led the design for the pedestrian bridge at Nevitt Park over the Western Canal.
