A project of this scale requires specialist expertise in design-build to deliver a road solution involving an enormous volume of materials, including 7.2 million tons of aggregates, 445,000 tons of asphalt and 55,000 cubic yards of readymix concrete. All of this has to be delivered to site and installed with minimal environmental and community impact.
Construction of the West Davis Corridor began in 2021. Staker Parson Materials & Construction, A CRH Company, is helping to deliver the various components needed for the project, including underground utility work, drainage, and fence installations, preliminary bridge work, placing stabilisation fabric, and excavation and embankment work in preparation to place granular borrow and road base.
To minimise environmental impacts, innovative engineering and construction methods are being implemented. Oldcastle Infrastructure, A CRH Company, is partnering with Staker Parson to provide 76,504 linear feet of Reinforced Concrete Pipe to capture stormwater as part of the drainage system. Staker Parson Materials & Construction has also implemented an innovative roadway embankment effort by hauling large amounts of repurposed aggregate material from its South Weber and Beck Street quarries and using it as structural fill. This material is helping build up the grade in preparation for asphalt, which will incorporate over 78,000 tons of recycled asphalt in the blend.
This project will improve the quality of road transportation in northern Utah and demonstrates CRH’s unrivalled capabilities in delivering complete solutions for sustainable road construction that meets the needs of customers and better connects communities.
