The Scottsdale HAWK (“High Intensity Activate Cross Walk”) crossing is a politically significant project with multiple stakeholders, including local businesses, the City of Scottsdale and the City of Phoenix.  The project creates a safe midblock crossing where pedestrians were inclined to cross solely for convenience regardless of safety.  In addition to the pedestrian activated traffic signal, the project incorporates native drought tolerant plant material, iconic Saguaros, a solar light guided concrete path, stamped asphalt crossings, ADA Ramps, stacked stone walls and custom artistic steel panel shade canopies.  Working under a Job Order Contract (“JOC”), Valley Rain accommodated changing designs to comply with a tight completion schedule.
