Springville — The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has awarded W.W. Clyde & Co. the I-15; South Davis Operational Improvements Project. Design on this $83 million design-build job is scheduled to begin immediately. Construction is expected to begin later this spring with completion expected in July of 2015.
W.W. Clyde has teamed with Parsons Brinkerhoff to provide design services for this project.
The project is designed to increase mobility in South Davis County to meet current traffic needs. Work includes building an additional lane in each direction from US-89 in Woods Cross to Farmington and rebuilding portions of the 2600 South and 500 South surface streets. The project will also replace seven aging bridges on this section of I-15 at 2600 South, 1500 South, 500 South and 400 North.
W.W. Clyde's proposed interchange concept at 2600 South is expected to improve function over the concept plan and is designed to better accommodate the heaviest traffic movements to and from the Salt Lake Valley.
"This project is designed to significantly reduce the current congestion and delays experienced along this passage of I-15," said W.W. Clyde project sponsor Jeff Cochran.
Strategic project phasing is expected to have all I-15 construction completed in 2014.
"Our phased approach to rebuilding the structures carrying I-15 traffic does not require any closures of I-15 over these bridges," Cochran said.
W.W. Clyde was selected for the job through a competitive request for proposals process involving multiple heavy civil contractors.
