SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has selected Farmington Bay Constructors to design and build the new 16-mile West Davis Highway. The $475 million construction contract makes this UDOT’s largest current project.
Farmington Bay Constructors (FBC), a joint venture of Ames Construction, Wadsworth Brothers Construction, and Staker Parson Materials and Construction, was selected from a shortlist of three design-build teams. Design for the highway is now underway, and construction is expected to begin this spring, with expected completion in 2024.
“FBC has shown that they share UDOT’s commitment to enhancing quality of life by keeping Utah moving,” UDOT Project Director Rex Harris said. “Their proposal provided the best value through innovation, safety, quality, and reduced impacts to local communities – at a very competitive cost.”
The West Davis Highway will improve access to and from I-15 for residents and businesses in western Davis County. It is expected to reduce congestion on local streets west of I-15 by 30 percent or more. The four-lane divided highway will run from I-15 in Farmington to 4500 West and the future extension of S.R. 193 in West Point, and includes six new interchanges.
