950 North Preparations
• Farmington Bay Constructors has begun preparing the 950 North area in Farmington to be used as a hauling route for to the West Davis project, as well as other upcoming state and city projects.
• In close coordination with Kaysville and Farmington cities, the contractor is preparing the 950 North area to save time and money for future state and city projects, including the West Davis Highway, 950 North Connector Road city project, and the future I-15/Shepard Lane interchange project.
• Utilizing the 950 North haul route will help consolidate the overall number of truck trips needed and reduce the impacts on existing haul routes currently in operation in the Farmington and Kaysville community.
• This coordination between West Davis, the local 950 North Connector Road Farmington/Kaysville city project, and the I-15/Shepard Lane interchange project helps increase overall efficiency, shortens project schedules, saves taxpayer dollars, and minimizes long term construction impacts to the local community.
• Early activities will include minimal placement of dirt material, landscape and debris clearing, and surface grading.
• Trucks hauling dirt to the West Davis project site will increase towards the end of June as the haul route prep work is complete. Hauling will continue through the early fall.
• Safety precautions such as temporary construction fencing and reduced speeds will be in effect, as well as flagging operations when needed. While the majority ofthis work will take place over the summer, the project team will also coordinate with local school leaders on providing safe walking routes for students traveling to and from school.
