Staker Parson Materials & Construction, a CRH company, won the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) 10+ Highway Project of the Year for their Mountain View Corridor project. The Design to Build project was a joint venture with Ralph L. Wadsworth.
“Both the Ralph L. Wadsworth and Staker Materials & Construction team contributed forward compatibility, ride quality, and how to reduce risks for the active transportation network on the Mountain View Corridor project, which ultimately contributed to us winning this award,” says Tyler Shepherd, Staker Parson Materials & Construction design build manager, in a press release. “Our design and construction team understood the project’s challenges and opportunities and how it fits into UDOT’s (Utah Department of Transportation) ultimate plans for this critical roadway.”
The Mountain View Corridor project included the design and construction of a new segment of the Mountain View Corridor in West Valley City, Utah. A roadway and shared-use path were added during the project, as well as 14 mainline bridges and seven pedestrian bridges.
The 2-mile shared-use path was built to add a safe space for walking, biking, and other activities. Multiple access points were built to allow easy access to the path for local residents. The team also installed 35 decorative lamps and 110 trees posts as part of the project.
