The Utah Department of Transportation has selected HADCO Construction of Lehi to build the Utah County segment of the Mountain View Corridor.
The 3 mi. (4.8 km) construction area on 2100 North from Redwood Road to I-15 in Lehi, Utah, consists of constructing a frontage road system of two lanes in each direction with signalized intersections, building four new bridges spanning the Jordan River, and site preparation for a future FrontRunner rail line. The project is slated for completion in the fall of 2011.
HADCO has commenced site-clearing work and will close 2100 North from Pointe Meadow Drive to Thanksgiving Way. Crews will begin installing a storm drain line along the north edge of the project area between the railroad and the Jordan River. It also will begin placing fill material near the Jordan River in preparation for the new bridges.
According to UDOT, future expansion of the corridor will occur over time by adding more lanes when it is needed to meet traffic demands and as funding is available. The phased approach is to address short-term regional transportation needs while providing for a long-term solution for the future.
The Mountain View Corridor is a planned freeway, transit and trail system in western Salt Lake and northwestern Utah counties, servicing 13 municipalities in the project area. To meet projected transportation demands in the year 2030, the full build-out includes a freeway that connects with Interstate 80 at 5800 West in Salt Lake City in the north and Interstate 15 at 2100 North in Lehi in the south. The transit component of the project is a high-capacity service line on 5600 West in Salt Lake County that connects with both the planned Airport Extension at the International Center and Mid-Jordan Line in South Jordan.
HADCO Construction was founded in 1989 specializing in agriculture irrigation but has transitioned into a $50 million regional company with three divisions: heavy highway, commercial and residential construction. Headquartered in Lehi, Utah, HADCO has more than 300 employees and specializes in site development and excavation, while operating four sand and gravel locations along the Wasatch Front.
