The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is reconstructing three intersections along Bangerter Highway. The $220 million project is replacing existing at-grade intersections with grade-separated crossings to improve traffic flow and safety.
The crossings’ new elevations interfered with existing South Valley Sewer District (SVSD) pipelines, so the pipelines had to be relocated to maintain gravity flow. Starting in 2018, HAL began preliminary study and design of a new sewer route. HAL designed a pipeline loop to bypass the new intersections and reconnect to SVSD’s existing system on the other side.
“This project was critical for maintaining continuous sewer service to the South Jordan community while UDOT completes important capacity upgrades at the intersections,” said HAL project manager Ben Miner, P.E., M.P.A.
The project includes approximately 5,000 feet of predominantly 15-inch sewer pipe, manholes, 24- and 30-inch bores and casings, lateral relocation and reconnection, utility conflict solutions, concrete surface panel restoration, and surface feature restoration. In addition to the design, HAL provided survey services, easement preparation, stakeholder involvement, agency coordination, and services during construction, including full-time construction observation.
The pipeline loop was recently completed and HAL is now advising SVSD and UDOT on final details. HAL is proud to support local projects that improve the traffic flow and safety for our growing communities.
