Innovation, technology and environmental consciousness are of the highest importance at Geneva Rock. These were vital standards during the I-80 Silver Creek to Wanship project that was recently completed. UDOT teamed up with Geneva Rock to replace this 7 1/2 mile stretch of I-80 that had corroded due to the high altitude and harsh environment. →
The city of Lehi, Utah sought to increase the allowable amount of water their municipal drainage ditch could handle. The Lehi City Wast Ditch Improvements project includes removal of four existing pipe culverts, replacing them with pour-in-place box culverts. Utilities and asphalt paving work is also being completed at the end of the project to improve the surrounding areas. Geneva →
Salt Lake City Department of Airports required upgrade and a pavement rehabilitation on several of their runways (16-34). Taxiway ‘A’ was reconstructed, then milled and paving was completed on the runways and taxiway.
The project consisted of reconstructing a 10-mile stretch of I-84 (both east- and west-bound lanes) between the Morgan County communities of Morgan and Mountain Green. The scope of this project included placement of new Portland Cement Concrete Paving along with resurfacing of 12 bridges and construction of new approach slabs.
Safety improvements were made to the roadway, including a cable barrier in the median, crash cushions, impact attenuators, guard rails, concrete barriers and new signage. Already, these features have done their job in mitigating several traffic accidents. In one such reported incident, a semi-truck driver fell asleep at the wheel and overcorrected into the cable barrier. If not for the barrier, the truck would have driven into oncoming traffic.
The east- and west-bound lanes along I-84 contain 10 inches of concrete, three (3) inches of asphalt and a stronger cement-treated subbase that will help ensure the 40-year design life of this roadway. According to tests performed on the material and work product, Geneva Rock Products, Inc. has averaged a 25 percent higher break strength than required for the project on concrete.
