C202P really digs Transportation Day!

March 9, 2018

Adults and children in toy hard hats get an up-close look at a bulldozer and excavator.

Children of all ages had a great time learning about different kinds of construction equipment in use on the South Mountain Freeway project.

Since 2000, Horizon Presbyterian Church’s Transportation Day has provided an opportunity for Ahwatukee children and families to explore vehicles of all sizes, shapes and types, and on February 24, 2018, C202P was there to provide an up-close look at some of the heavy equipment being used to build the South Mountain Freeway.

C202P team members Darren Wood, Matt Trembly, Allen New, Brittany Amaral and Adam Ramirez volunteered to assist Ryan Clickner and Jennifer Nalley in showing off an excavator, bulldozer, grader, dump truck and scraper. People had an opportunity to take pictures inside the excavator’s big shovel, and kids sported their very own C202P “hard hats”.

The team also shared information with the community about the project and the ongoing Liberty Lane waterline relocation work. “Events like this are a great opportunity to meet face-to-face with the community, answer questions and inform people about work that’s happening in and around their neighborhoods,” said Ryan Clickner. “Transportation Day has been a really positive experience and a lot of fun for everybody, including us.”
