Tucson, Ariz. (April 9, 2013) - A resurfacing project for Tucson International Airport's (TIA's) crosswind runway 3-21 has won a 2012 Build Arizona Award from the Arizona Chapter of the Associated General Contractors. The award will be presented April 12 in Phoenix.

The $8.6 million project, funded by federal and state grants, included removal and replacement of the top three inches of asphaltic concrete, as well as restriping, drainage improvements and adjustments to edge lighting and lighted signage.
The Tucson firm of Stantec Consulting Services, Inc., provided design and construction administration services for the project. Granite Construction was the contractor.
The award category is public new construction (rural), projects under $10 million.
