Hunt Electric – Ahead of Schedule and Up to Speed

Press Release

December 21, 2012

The Utah Department of Transportation announced the successful completion of the I-15 Corridor Expansion Project (I-15 CORE) a full year ahead of schedule. Hunt Electric was a significant part of the $1.7 billion project, contributing to the complex team of contractors it’s many years of traffic and infrastructure experience.

Scott Risley, project director for Provo River Constructors, said, “Hunt has been an asset to the PRC team and made great efforts to finish the project on time and on budget without compromising quality or safety.”

The I-15 CORE project stretched 24 miles through Utah County, vastly improving accessibility and safety. The old asphalt road surface was replaced with a new concrete surface with an expected 40-year life. Two lanes, including a new Express Lane were added in each direction as well as a number of safety enhancements, new bridges, and interchanges. Hunt was able to complete 21 state-of-the-art traffic signals and install over 1,300 individual sign, high-mast, under-bridge, and roadway lights, which required 285 miles of wire.

Hunt Electric is pleased to have partnered with UDOT and the Provo River Construction team formed by Ames Construction, Ralph Wadsworth Construction, Flour Construction and Wadsworth Brothers Construction, to earn the public confidence through teamwork and highest quality in workmanship.

Hunt Electric has been doing business in the Intermountain Area for more than 26 years, offering a multitude of services outside of traditional electrical contracting. These include Design-Build and Engineering, Arc Flash Studies, Building Information Modeling (BIM), Traffic and Infrastructure, Distribution and Transmission Services, Renewable Energy, Data/Communication Services and Preventive Maintenance and Service.
