“This recognition goes beyond affirmation of the quality of work we do on our projects, but also how we deliver them,” said Sundt Project Manager Thiago Bezerra. “I’m very proud of our project team for their perseverance to get us to the finish line with this well-deserved recognition.”
The project had four distinct components. Over the course of a year and a half, the Sundt team resurfaced Redwood Road from 500 South in Bountiful to Center Street in North Salt Lake and Recreation Way to the County Line. The team additionally reconstructed and widened four miles of the I-215 from 2100 N to I-15. The reconstruction of I-215 required the placement of over 25,000 cubic yards of concrete.
Sundt then rebuilt and reconfigured the intersection of Redwood Road and Center Street, which included adding turning lanes, northbound lanes and signals. The team also fully reconstructed and widened Redwood Road between Center Street and I-215. This reconstruction and widening will help address future traffic needs in the area.
The final piece of the project was the addition of a diverging diamond intersection and bridge over the I-215. This kind of intersection is designed to improve the efficiency and safety of an interchange; it allows for higher volumes of traffic to cross, enter or exit the freeway.
The project also won the Associated General Contractors of America Utah Chapter’s Urban Highway Project of the Year; UDOT Employee of the Year award for Project Manager and Region Preconstruction Engineer Brett Slater; and the American Concrete Pavement Association Utah Chapter 2019 Excellence in Paving award.
