PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Department of Transportation has selected a consortium of firms and companies from among three finalists to design and build a major new 22-mi. (35.4 km) long freeway in the Phoenix metro area.

The department said it expects to finalize a contract with Connect 202 Partners on the Loop 202 project by mid-February. Construction is to begin next summer and take up to four years to complete.

The new freeway will connect Interstate 10 in the Chandler area with I-10 on the west side of Phoenix.

Connect 202 Partners includes Fluor Enterprises Inc., Granite Construction Co., Ames Construction Inc. and Parsons Brinckerhoff Inc.

The department said such a large project normally would be split into several smaller ones but that the state will save money by having one team handle it entirely.
