Layton Canal Relocation

2/17/21 Update

Traffic flagging operations will be effective at Gleneagles Drive/St. Andrews Drive during daytime hours on Thursday and Friday (Feb. 18-19) and Monday and Tuesday (Feb. 22-23) to accommodate utility relocation work. Delays are expected to be minimal.

1/8/21 Layton Canal Update

Sections of the Syracuse Trail are temporarily closed through early spring 2021 to maintain public safety through work zones. Detours are noted on the map below. Crews are also boring underneath the intersection of 3000 West/Tryall Drive to install pipe casings, which has required a temporary closure of the intersection. Northbound traffic is detoured to St. Andrews Drive and southbound traffic is detoured to Bluff Road. The road will reopen as boring operations and roadway restoration are completed.

Project Background

Layton Canal relocation began in Syracuse in fall 2020. A section of the existing irrigation pipeline is being relocated to accommodate construction of the West Davis Corridor highway. The canal is operated by the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District and delivers irrigation water to local farmers. Crews expect to complete work by April 2021 prior to the spring irrigation season. West Davis Corridor (WDC) mainline construction is expected to begin in spring 2021.
