PHOENIX (AP) - Three teams of developers, contractors, engineering firms and consultants remain in contention for a mammoth Arizona freeway construction project.

The state Department of Transportation says it has selected three teams out of five previously under consideration to submit proposals for a $1.9 billion contract for design, build and maintain the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway project.

The planned 22-mile new freeway segment will run south of the Phoenix area’s center, with both the east and west ends connecting with Interstate 10.

The state will pay for the project with sales tax proceeds and money borrowed through tax-exempt bonds.

The department says it plans to request final proposals later this spring and to award a contract by the end of the year.
