PAPAGO FREEWAY-DESIGN CONCEPT
A design study was made in connection with the construction of the East Papago Freeway in Arizona. The design concepts of depressed freeway, elevated freeway and variable gradeline freeway were studied in regard to esthetics, geometrics, traffic flow, interfering facilities, financial conditions, effect upon the total environment including noise, and joint or multiple use. After careful review of the study, the engineering staff of the Arizona Highway Department selected the elevated viaduct concept for construction.
