Civil construction firm W.W. Clyde & Co. has secured a contract from the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) in the US to provide design services for the I-15; South Davis operational improvements project.
The project includes construction of 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.
After completion, the $83 million project will replace seven bridges on the section of I-15 at 2600 South, 1500 South, 500 South and 400 North.
W.W. Clyde said it will work with Parsons Brinkerhoff on the project, which is designed to increase mobility in South Davis County to meet the exisiting traffic needs.
The company noted that its proposed interchange concept at 2600 South improves function over the concept plan and is designed to better accommodate the heaviest traffic movements to and from the Salt Lake Valley.
Construction work, which is due to start later this spring, is anticipated to be completed in July 2015.
W.W. Clyde project sponsor Jeff Cochran the project is designed to significantly reduce the current congestion and delay experienced along the passage of I-15.
