Award: Utah State Route 108 widening
Value: $45 million
Location: Davis County, Utah
Clients: Utah DOT
Granite Construction is on the road again, this time in Utah.
The Watsonville, California-based general contractor won a $45 million contract from the Beehive State’s DOT to widen and improve State Route 108 in Davis County north of Salt Lake City. Funding comes from both state and federal dollars.
The project will transform the roadway from a three-lane asphalt corridor to a five-lane concrete thoroughfare, according to Granite. The comprehensive reconstruction and expansion job will also replace all utilities and infrastructure components along the route.
Key improvements include:
- Installing 10,000 linear feet of storm drainage systems.
- Laying down 7,000 linear feet of irrigation infrastructure.
- Incorporating 2,000 linear feet of water main infrastructure.
- Positioning 2,000 linear feet of sewer main improvements.
Granite’s takeoffs for the project include the use of 48,000 tons of untreated base course, 21,000 tons of concrete sand and 16,000 tons of concrete aggregates from its nearby South Wells Facility. It will also source 2,000 tons of hot mix asphalt from its West Haven Facility near Ogden to streamline procurement of essential materials.
“By widening and enhancing the SR-108 corridor in this area, we are taking substantial steps to alleviate traffic congestion problems,” said Jason Klaumann, Granite’s vice president of regional operations. “Additionally, we are making provisions for enhancements in active transportation and implementing significant safety upgrades.”
Granite started the project this month and expects to complete it in November 2025.
