Texas Spur 601 in El Paso, Texas is a new state highway that connects US 54 to Loop 375. The $368 million project is seven miles long and features12 bridges, including four direct connectors between US 54 and Spur 601, a 6,000-foot viaduct bridge spanning an existing service road and a new entrance to nearby Fort Bliss, and a traffic management system. AECOM, as the Lead Designer for the Design-Build team, was responsible for the overall design delivery.
To meet the ambitious design schedule, a comprehensive, fully-integrated design and construction team, solely committed to the project, was formed. With the majority of the project designers located in the project office, design coordination was seamless and constant despite the challenging design-build environment. Project design was substantially complete in one year, with construction completed in April 2011.
