I-15 CORE

Provo River Contractors, an association of local and national contractors, won the job with a proposal that will stretch the $1.725 billion budget from Lehi down to Spanish Fork. The group’s proposed December 2012 finish date — two years ahead of UDOT’s schedule — certainly sweetened the deal as well.

The scope of the Utah County I-15 Corridor Expansion project (CORE) was essentially to widen I-15 as far south of Lehi Main Street as possible, overhauling several interchanges along the way; it was up to three competing contractors to show just how far south UDOT’s dollar could go.

Starting spring 2010, PRC, headed by Fluor Corporation, Ames Construction Company, Inc., Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction Company, LLC and Wadsworth Brothers Construction Company, Inc., will widen I-15 by two lanes in each direction (four lanes total) from Lehi to Spanish Fork, extend the freeway express lane from University Parkway to Spanish Fork and revamp 10 interchanges and 55 bridges along the way.
