This 35 million dollar design build project was awarded to the RLW team in early spring 2011. The project included the construction of continuous flow intersections at 6200 south and 7000 south along the highly traveled Bangerter highway as well as a new separated grade Single Point Urban Interchange at 7800 south and Bangerter.
The project included the acquisition of over 30 Right of way parcels, the relocation of many critical utilities including natural gas, power, phone, cable, water and sewer systems. This included joint retrofit on the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District 72 inch aqueduct that serves millions of residents with culinary water.
This high volume roadway serving both commercial and residential areas required a unique approach to maintenance of traffic, the RLW team utilized a first ever “thru-turn” scheme to accomplish the efficient movement of traffic while still constructing a single phase bridge and elevated roadway.
Also, with a new and much wider roadway being built the existing pedestrian bridge at 7800 south and Bangerter needed to be removed and replaced with a longer one. The old pedestrian bridge was carefully removed, repainted and updated and will be installed later at 8200 south and U-111.
The project is now substantially complete and all lanes and pedestrian facilities at Bangerter highway are open to the public.
