Ford Oval Track Reconstruction

Wittman, AZ

Angelo Iafrate was the prime contractor on this multi-million dollar removal and reconstruction project located in Arizona.  

 

Working with a team of seven specialty engineering & construction partners, the project was finished on-time and within budget. The track, a 2.2 mile long and 3-lane wide parabolic asphalt surface, was removed and reconstructed within four months of the initial closure. 

 

Aside from the addition of a fourth travel lane and construction of an asphalt maintenance road at the top of the parabolic and transition sections, the track geometry (circular curve and spiral transition) remained the same.  New drainage ditches and swales were cut, and improvements were made to the existing drainage ditches, swales and side slopes.
