The West Davis Corridor will be a new 16-mile, 4-lane divided highway in Western Davis County between the I-15 and Legacy Parkway junction at Glovers Lane in Farmington. It will help provide additional transportation options, reduce traffic impacts, and provide connectivity throughout the region. This highway will also include freeway-style interchanges, over 10 miles of new trails and connections, and a future extension of S.R. 193 in West Point.
Work on this project began in the spring of 2021.
Work Activities to Date
Work Activities completed during this period include underground utility work, drainage and fence installations, preliminary bridge work, placing stabilization fabric, and excavation and embankment work in preparation to place granular borrow and road base. Asphalt paving operations also took place in various areas throughout the corridor.
Staker Parson Materials & Construction implemented an innovative recycling effort by hauling large amounts of material that is typically disposed of from the South Weber and Beck Street quarries and using it as a road base. This material also helps build up the grade in preparation for asphalt.
The West Davis project has significantly progressed since construction started in early 2021.
Work activities during this period include the construction of a 250,000 SF retaining wall, 21 vehicular bridge structures, 5 pedestrian bridge structures, 6 pedestrian box structures, 8 drainage/creek box structures, and 1 vehicular box structure.
Regarding the nature and success of the project, Thomas Brittain, Staker Parson Project Controls Manager, explained,
“I’ve been a part of several large design-build projects. None has had to endure what this one is currently experiencing, with severe impacts from a global pandemic, major supply chain issues, largely inflated materials, and an accelerated schedule. This project, however, will be a success despite the uphill climb. We are built for this!”
Work activities are expected to be successfully completed by the summer of 2024.
