W.W. Clyde & Co., Springville, Utah, was recently awarded the Victory Pipeline Phase I project, a $12-million water transportation job that will serve seven water districts in Duchesne County, Utah; and the I-15, South Davis Operational Improvements Project from the Utah Dept. of Transportation.
The Victory project consists of building a new water pipeline from Starvation Reservoir to Roosevelt City and, according to the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board, will provide increased capacity for Duchesne County’s economic and population growth.
The project will directly benefit the populations of Duchesne City, Roosevelt City, Myton City, Johnson Water District, East Duchesne Water District, Neola and other areas of Duchesne County. Ballard in Uintah County also will benefit from the pipeline.
W.W. Clyde will provide both design assistance and construction services for the pipeline project, which is slated to start immediately and be complete by the end of 2014.
Project work has been divided into two phases and includes installation of 29 miles of 30-in. to 20-in.-diameter HDPE pipeline. Additional work includes excavation and backfill, surface restoration, the Duchesne River crossing, canal crossings, stream crossings and wetland restoration.
The Victory Pipeline project is a construction manager/general contractor process, so the first few months of the project will be dedicated to supporting Duchesne County’s design team by identifying and mitigating risks to the project, offering solutions, providing ongoing estimates to help the owner keep the project in budget and keeping a project schedule for design, construction and owner needs.
W.W. Clyde’s preconstruction support will reduce cost, improve quality and shorten construction duration.
W.W. Clyde was selected for the job through a statement of qualifications and request for proposals procurement processes. Three other highly qualified respondents were considered.
“This pipeline has been designed to fulfill water needs for Duchesne County for at least the next 50 to 75 years,” said W.W. Clyde & Co. President Jeff Clyde. “We are excited to get to work on a project that is a necessary improvement for the communities in this region of the state.”
UDOT recently awarded W.W. Clyde & Co. the I-15, South Davis Operational Improvements Project. Design on the $83-million design-build job will start immediately, and construction will begin later this spring, with completion expected in July 2015. W.W.
Clyde has teamed with Parsons Brinkerhoff to provide design services for the project.
This Operational Improvements Project will increase mobility in South Davis County to meet current traffic needs. Work includes building an additional lane in each direction from U.S. 89 in Woods Cross to Farmington and rebuilding portions of the 2600 South and 500 South surface streets. The project will also replace seven aging bridges on this section of I-15: at 2600 South, 1500 South, 500 South and 400 North.
W.W. Clyde’s proposed interchange concept at 2600 South improves function over the concept plan and is designed to better accommodate the heaviest traffic movements to and from the Salt Lake Valley.
“This project is designed to significantly reduce the current congestion and delays experienced along this passage of I-15,” said W.W. Clyde Project Sponsor Jeff Cochran.
The contractor has scheduled work to minimize construction delays for the travelling public. Strategic project phasing will have all I-15 construction completed in 2014.
“Our phased approach to rebuilding the structures carrying I-15 traffic does not require any closures of I-15 over these bridges,” Cochran said.
