Kiewit-Clyde received a prestigious award from the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) at its annual convention in Las Vegas. The company was recognized for its outstanding work on the Mountain View Corridor – 4100 South to SR-201, a joint venture design-build project between Kiewit and WW Clyde.
“A lot of innovation went into the success of this project,” said Dustin Olson, President of WW Clyde. “Our team members worked long hours alongside our partners at Kiewit. It was challenging, but worth it to help improve transportation in Salt Lake City. I’m proud of what we accomplished and am grateful to the AGC for the recognition.”
The $230 million highway project was designed to improve the transportation network in western Salt Lake City, connecting a residential suburb to a commercial and industrial development. The project included the construction of four miles of two-lane freeway, as well as on- and off-ramps, grade-separated bridge crossings, 13 vehicle bridges, and six pedestrian bridges. Additionally, a new trail system was built along the corridor to facilitate walking and biking.
One of the most impressive aspects of the project was the team’s innovative paving approach, which is expected to make the concrete last longer and be less prone to failure. The team worked tirelessly over 700,000 man-hours without any lost time injuries, a testament to both companies’ commitment to safety and efficiency.
In addition to the construction work, team members took the opportunity to visit local elementary schools to teach students about active construction site hazards and discuss construction and equipment in a safe environment. It was the perfect opportunity to give back to the community and inspire the next generation of construction workers.
This award serves as a testament to Kiewit-Clyde’s expertise and dedication to excellence. By providing innovative solutions and prioritizing safety and community outreach, Kiewit and WW Clyde continue to set a new standard for construction projects in the Intermountain West.
Congratulations to all involved in this important project!
