  • Bowman Consulting leads ADOT's ASU pedestrian-bicycle grade separation project with Jacobs and SmithGroup.

On Wednesday, Bowman Consulting Group Ltd. BWMN said it has been selected by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to provide engineering and oversight services related to the construction of pedestrian and bicycle grade separation at Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.

“Bowman is deeply familiar with ASU and Tempe, and we understand how this project benefits students, faculty and community members,” said Jay Yenerich, transportation market leader at Bowman. 

The ADOT project marks Bowman’s first major contract with ADOT, displaying its strategic expansion into the public works and transportation markets in the Western U.S.

Bowman, as the main engineering contractor, will spearhead the project with Jacobs and SmithGroup. The company will develop an advanced utility relocation (AUR) plan, oversee public art integration, create alternative alignments, cost estimates, and 360-degree renderings, engaging the public and stakeholders.

Situated at College Avenue and University Drive, the project will entail building a pedestrian and bicycle grade separation connecting Downtown Tempe, the Tempe Transportation Center, and ASU’s sports venues to the heart of the campus. It may also feature a terraced plaza, public art, architectural lighting, and landscaping.

Additional project subconsultants include Delta Star Quality Contracting, Lokahi, Ethos Engineering, Central Creative and Specialized Services Company. Construction of the pedestrian and bicycle grade separation project is anticipated to begin in late 2025.

According to Benzinga Pro, BWMN stock has gained 12% in the past year.
