UDOT announces more than 200 summer road construction projects
A recent Deseret News article talks about the more than 200 summer UDOT projects that will be going on costing an estimated $4 billion.
SOUTH JORDAN — Motorists traveling east on Daybreak View Parkway past Herriman High School pass signs warning of construction, but Thursday afternoon, only a few construction workers and trucks are visible. Many of the residents at the Timbergate apartment complex across the street weren't even sure what was being built there.
It won't be that way for long.
The site is one of more than 200 projects the Utah Department of Transportation will be working on for the rest of the year, a record in the state. UDOT estimates the projects will cost just under an estimated $4 billion.
"There's a lot of pain coming," said Robert Stewart, I-15 CORE deputy project director for UDOT.
