UDOT extended Hinckley Drive west from 1900 West to Midland Drive to provide a direct connection to I-15 for southwest Weber County residents. The project comprised of one of the longest non-freeway bridges ever built in Utah. The bridge extends more than 300 ft across the Union Pacific Railroad and UTA FrontRunner tracks. The project included a new four-lane road, realignment of existing roads, two new bridges, a pedestrian trail underpass and two new signalized intersections. One at Midland Drive and the second at 3600 South in West Haven, Utah.
The project will provide greater east-west mobility in the area, with a direct connection for residents of southwestern Weber County to Interstate 15.
The project gave SCI the opportunity to really show how our diversity. We installed two complete traffic signals including the pedestrian crossings and a complete automated traffic management system on this project. The big departure from the norm was the opportunity to work hand in hand with the bridge builders and install the post tension cabling system that keeps the bridge intact! Hats off to our crews for showing our ability to get a bit out of the box.
