This project also showcases an official Scottsdale Public Art feature called "Alluvium". The installation by Texas artist Brad Goldberg includes a pedestrian underpass, sculptural railings, and a landscape feature, all located on the east side of Pima Road at the north and south corners of Pinnacle Peak Road. The landscape feature, on the northeast corner of Pima Road and Pinnacle Peak Road, is an arrangement of large granite boulders that evokes the nearby Pinnacle Peak. "It is as if Pinnacle Peak has been brought down to the scale of the user's experience through this ramped area. Plantings of the native species that exist in the specific Pinnacle Peak microclimate help create a project that integrates wholly into its environment, while creating a fresh approach to such public works of infrastructure," Goldberg said.
The Pima Road - Loop 101 to Pinnacle Peak CMAR project won a Build Arizona Award in the Public Project – Renovation - Municipal/Utilities - Over $10 million category. This Construction Manager at Risk project began in February 2006 and was completed in August 2011.
