The Town of Superior is a small mining town located at the junction of US Route 60 and State Route 177 within Pinal County, approximately 65 miles east of the Phoenix metropolitan area. This study focuses on providing the town with a comprehensive pavement assessment of the local road network. This assessment will produce a list of short, medium, and long-term investment choices in order to systematically address pavement preservation and maintenance activities throughout the town’s roadways.
Due to the mountainous geography and proximity towards the Queen Creek Wash, which runs east to west through the town, drainage issues and high water crossings are prevalent concerns that adversely affect the long-term pavement condition at specific locations. This study will assess these specific pavement concerns as well as other pavement needs identified elsewhere.
Independently of this study, the Town of Superior is coordinating with the Pinal County Flood Control District, which will furthermore address the town’s drainage improvement activities. Pinal County Flood Control District personnel have been included on the Technical Advisory Committee for this study to ensure coordination between the Project Management Teams.
