Pivot Point Plaza
Role: Civil and Structural Design, Utility Coordination
Owner: City of Yuma
POINT provided final design services for this project which includes construction of an interpretive plaza along the south bank of the Colorado River in downtown Yuma.

The POINT team also prepared specifications for the restoration of the historic concrete pivot structure. The project was federally funded and complied with FHWA requirements.
Scottsdale Waterfront at AZ Canal
Role: Stuctural Design
Owner: City of Scottsdale
POINT ENGINEERS provided design services for this fast-track JOC project. POINT ENGINEERS worked directly with the contractor to develop structural designs and assisted in expediting construction for the 2008 Super Bowl events planned for the site. The project included a linear park along the south canal bank, retaining walls, sculptures, utility relocations, storm drainage, and outdoor structures. Responsibilities included the design of cantilevered canal overlooks, pavilion foundations, retaining walls, and a foundation for a bronze monument by Herb Mignery honoring the Hashknife Pony Express.
US 93 Wagon Bow Ranch
Mohave County, AZ
Role: Roadway and Bridge Design, Utility Coordination
POINT, provided the final civil and structural design for a new 4.1 mile southbound roadway and reconstruction of portion of the existing adjacent highway from Milepost 108.9 to 113. Project features included two new wash crossing bridges, drainage structures including 12 new box culvert and 17 new pipe culverts, as well as accomodations for a future TI. At the bridge site, the DCR called for one new two-span SB bridge and for the existing NB RCRC to remain and be replaced by a twin two-span bridge in the future. The POINT team performed a drainage analysis and bridge cost comparison and determined that shorter one-span bridges could be constructed now for both NB and SB at an ultimate savings.
Plymouth Road Trail
Role: Civil Design
Owner: Town of Quartzsite
POINT ENGINEERS completed the final design of the Plymouth/Quail Trail pathway project for the Town of Quartzsite. The project included a new ten-foot asphalt pathway, new landscaping, driveway connections, and drainage improvements. The project also included pedestrian enhancements including benches and shade structures. The project was funded through the ADOT Transportation Enhancement Group and POINT ENGINEERS assisted the owner in providing the necesary construction documents to meet Federal Guidelines.
Waddell Road, SR 303 to Reems Road
Role: Roadway and Structural Design, Utility Coordination
Owner: City of Surprise
POINT provided preliminary and final design of the Waddel Road widening. The project consists of widening eastbound and westbound Waddell Road to a 6-lane major arterial with raised median and bike lanes, three new signalized intersections, retention basins, landscaped medians and buffers, and utility relocations.
The design involved significant coordination with the adjacent land developer engineering team to accommodate a new Costco store within the project limits that has strong citywide support. The project will be constructed by a CMAR contractor and combined with the Costco development construction.
SR 95 Bill Williams River NWR Road
Lake Havasu, AZ
Role: Prime - Roadway and Structural Design
POINT ENGINEERS provided preliminary scoping (project assessment) and final design for the intersection improvement project on SR 95 at Milepost 161 adjacent to the Bill Williams River Nation Wildlife Refuge (NWR) and the Central Arizona Project’s Mark Wilmer Pumping Plant at Lake Havasu. During the scoping phase we looked at three alternatives including a roundabout. Ultimately the project team selected right turn lanes and two-way left turn lanes. POINT worked in close coordination with the contractor and project team for a value engineering proposal to revise the design to eliminate several hundred feet of the retaining wall along Access Road A. This was achieved by re-grading the tie-in of the toe-of-slope on proposed fill slopes.
I-10 Ina Road TI
Role: Prime - Structural Design
This CMAR project consists of elevating Ina Road (currently depressed) over I-10 and the Union Pacific Railroad as well as reconstructing 1.5 miles of I-10. In coordination with the CMAR, POINT provided structures support for design of the project drainage system and an extensive MSE retaining wall system complicated by 40-foot heights and utilities.
I-10 Perryville Road TI
Role: Bridge Design and Utility Coordination
As part of the Design Build team, POINT ENGINEERS performed the final design of two new bridges carrying I-10 traffic over Perryville Road. The Design Build team developed an innovative maintenance of traffic plan to keep I-10 open during the entire construction phase which included the full reconstruction of two new two-span AASHTO girder bridges, replacing the existing single span structures in just 85 days. I-10 mainline traffic was routed through the TI ramps in both directions around the bridge construction. The project team was an Arizona Transportation Partnering Excellence Award winner.
The Estates Bridge
Role: Bridge Design
Owner: The Estates
POINT provided structural engineering design for this residential development constructed south of Flagstaff in the jurisdiction of Coconino County near the SR 89A and I-17 junction. The project includes a new AASHTO girder bridge spanning an environmentally sensitive 404/wetland area and was founded on rock sockets in karstic limestone. In addition to borings, supplemental seismic refraction was performed to determine the varying rock profile. The bridge included malapais stone veneer on the abutments and
custom aesthetic pilasters at each bridge corner.
Switzer Canyon and Turquoise Drive Intersection
Role: Roadway and Structural Design, Utility Coordination
Owner: City of Flagstaff
POINT provided final design for a new roundabout in the City of Flagstaff at the intersection of Switzer Canyon Drive and Turquoise Drive. The project was administered by ADOT and utilized federal safety funds. The scope of this project involved constructing a new single lane roundabout, storm drains and retaining walls. Significant construction phasing was required to maintain traffic as well as reconstruction of the existing Flagstaff Urban Trail System (FUTS) along with utility relocation.
SR 303L, Happy Valley Parkway to Lake Pleasant Parkway
Role: Roadway and Bridge Design, Utility Coordination and Design
POINT provided the final design of the SR 303L widening through Peoria.
