Habitat for Humanity volunteers began working Jan. 16 to remove building materials such as doors, windows, cabinets and light fixtures from several UDOT-owned homes in Midvale. These homes are scheduled for demolition to accommodate a future widening project on I-15 northbound between 9000 South and the I-215 interchange. The reclaimed building materials are then sold through Habitat for Humanity's ReStore in Salt Lake City, and the proceeds from these sales help fund Habitat for Humanity's efforts to build homes for those in need.

Over the past five years, UDOT and Habitat for Humanity have partnered to reclaim materials from nearly 130 houses. These houses were all acquired by UDOT as part of major construction projects to build new highways such as Mountain View Corridor or widen existing ones such as I-15 and Bangerter Highway.
