Drivers in a growing part of northern Phoenix, Arizona, are soon expected to experience reduced traffic congestion after the construction of an innovative diverging diamond interchange created with high-quality aggregates supplied by CEMEX.

More than 100,000 tons of aggregates from CEMEX, including 75,000 tons of Class 2 ABC, are being used to support an interchange reconstruction project currently underway that is designed to improve the link between Interstate 17 and Happy Valley Road. Crews with FNF Construction, Inc. are replacing two roundabouts that connect I-17 and Happy Valley with an intricate diverging diamond interchange, using the CEMEX aggregates to meet Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) specifications. 

The interchange at I-17 and Happy Valley Road is designed to meet ADOT specifications with an expected completion date in fall 2020. For more, visit
