I-10 / State Road 90 Traffic Interchange
The Interstate 10 / State Route 90 Traffic Interchange has been referred to as the “Gateway to the San Pedro” providing a distinctive entry to Benson, Kartchner Caverns, and Sierra Vista. Improvements included a new traffic interchange and Interstate 10 realignment to provide a wider, safer interstate through the incorporation of new on-off ramps, access roads, retaining walls, and improvements to drainage. WDG’s work included the design of architectural treatments, a native plant inventory, salvage and transplant plans, planting plans, and erosion/sediment control plans.
WDG worked closely with the Benson Historical Society, Arizona Archives, and Friends of the San Pedro River in the selection of photographic tile imagery, which showcase the flora and fauna of the San Pedro River Valley. WDG’s services also included public outreach regarding the development of structure aesthetics themes and preparation of a Transportation Enhancement Application for additional funding..
