An example of a government-related project that was innovative - something that helped solve a problem or contributed a solution
Emergency Highway Repairs for Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT):
A monsoon dumped as much as 1.7 inches of rain on House Rock Valley, AZ, in August 2015. The torrents of water damaged the roadway and culvert system. When skies cleared, the ADOT was tasked with removing tons of sediment that ranged from silt to 15-foot-diameter boulders so repairs to the roadway and drainage system could be completed. Just 11 days after submitting the price proposal through a Gordian Job Order Contracting process, the contractor, S.J. Anderson, began work. Time was of the essence, with a section of the roadway limited to one lane, even as tourist season increased traffic volume.
Due to the remote location and lack of local crews with heavy repair experience, S.J. Anderson had to bring in crews and equipment from as far away as 500 miles. In all, the contractor completed emergency repairs at seven sites along 24 miles of U.S. Route 89A. The $1.6 million project was completed in less than one month. By using Gordian’s Job Order Contracting solution, ADOT was able to quickly reopen the highway by securing qualified local contractors while also following state and federal procurement laws and codes.
