RELATED EXPERIENCE

MORMON TRAIL ROAD PLANNING AND FUNDING; TOOELE COUNTY, UT

The Mormon Trail Road was falling apart between Grantsville and Rush Valley in Tooele County. The entire stretch of road included 12 miles and the first phase included just over 2 miles of the worst section, including turning pockets for the gravel pits. Ryan helped acquire a grant of $2,145,000 from UDOT for Phase 1 and another grant of $2,000,000 from UDOT for Phase 2 at the beginning of 2015. Phase 2 was seven miles of full depth reclamation.


MARKET STREET & RIVERSIDE DRIVE; SARATOGA SPRINGS, UT

This roadway project included the planning, design, and construction of two new roads in Saratoga Springs. Market Street was built between the new Pioneer Crossing Extension and Redwood Road and included about ½ mile. Riverside Drive was built between 400 South and Pioneer Crossing and included just over 1 mile. Both roads included the design and construction of culinary water mains, secondary water mains, sewer mains, and storm drain mains with regional outfalls. The utilities were connected to the city-wide systems and included 18” jack and bores across Pioneer Crossing for the Riverside Drive sewer and water mains. Permitting included a Stream Alteration Permit, a Sovereign Lands State Permit, a FEMA floodplain permit, a UDOT Access Permit, UDOT Encroachment Permits, a Water System Permit, and Water-Sewer Crossing Exceptions. This project just reached substantial completion in December 2015.


OPHIR & SOLDIER CANYON ROAD REHABILITATION PROJECT; TOOELE COUNTY, UT

Tooele County received an opportunity to purchase old asphalt milled from Tooele City Main Street. The County asked Ryan to look into how this material could best be used. Ryan worked with Tim Biel at CME to determine that Ophir Canyon Road and Soldier Canyon Road were good candidates for cold asphalt recycling mixed at a central plant next to each road. Soldier Canyon Road was milled to its base course and regrading prior to receiving this overlay of recycled asphalt. Only the top couple inches were milled off of Ophir Canyon Road and placed on the shoulder prior to receiving this overlay of recycled asphalt. Overall, the county saved millions of dollars over a complete reconstruction of each road. Both roads were repaired at a cost of just over $700,000 for nearly six miles. This project completed construction in October of 2015.
