Utah Department of Transportation – 1300 East; Union Park Ave. to Sego Lily

1300 East prior to construction

Project Owner: Sandy City

General Contractor: Staker/Parsons

Project Engineer: Project Engineering Consultants (PEC)

Project Manager: Ben Vigil

Project Location: 1300 East; Union Park to Sego Lily, Sandy, Utah


Sandy City and UDOT have teamed with Staker and Parson Companies to complete the construction in Phase One of the 1300 East Improvement Project. Sandy City and UDOT have also teamed with Geneva Rock to complete the construction in Phase Two of the project.

Project elements include:

  • Landscaped raised medians
  • Intersection improvements
  • Street lighting
  • Decorative walls
  • ADA compliant pedestrian ramps
  • Bike path
  • Sidewalk, parkstrip, curb, and gutter improvements
  • Re-profile of the roadway near 9300 South


On this project, we are building new traffic signals from 8020 South to Sego Lily Drive on 1300 East. These signals are owned and maintained by Salt Lake County. They are being built to UDOT standards and specifications. We are also building the street lighting system for Sandy City on the same stretch of 1300 East.

We are also making adjustments to the Automated Traffic Management System (ATMS) system that were not addressed in the original project design. We are working to  find the best way to remedy issues as they arise. We have used many different means of excavation from open trenching to horizontal directional drilling and hydro vacuum excavation. The ground conditions on this project are very challenging due to the fact most of it is sand and cobble rock. This project began May of 2009 and is slated for completion in May 2011.
