Owner: Utah Department of Transportation

General Contractor: Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction

Completion Date: Fall 2010

Location: Ogden, Utah

Staker Parson developed an innovative solution to transport fill material to the job site on Hinckley Drive by installing a 2,200 foot-long conveyor that transported material above 1900 West and across the railroad. If the conveyor had not been used, traffic on 1900 West would have been stopped every two minutes to allow a truck to cross. Using the conveyor removed 307,000 truck miles off the roads and prevented the need of stopping traffic.

  • 500,000 tons imported fill material
  • 12,000 cubic yards ready-mixed concrete
  • 10,000 tons asphalt paving
