Staker Parson Wins Project of the Year from AGC of Utah


Staker Parson Materials & Construction, a CRH company, won the 10 + Highway Project of the Year from the Associated General Contractors of Utah for its Mountain View Corridor project. The Mountain View Corridor: 5400 South to 4100 South Design-to-Build project was a joint venture of Ralph L. Wadsworth and Ogden, Utah-based Staker Parson. 

“Both the Ralph L. Wadsworth and Staker Materials & Construction team contributed forward compatibility, ride quality, and how to reduce risks for the active transportation network on the Mountain View Corridor project, which ultimately contributed to us winning this award,” said Tyler Shepherd, Staker Parson Materials & Construction design build manager. “Our design and construction team understood the project’s challenges and opportunities and how it fits into Utah Department of Transportation's ultimate plans for this critical roadway.”

The Mountain View Corridor project consisted of designing and constructing a new segment of the Mountain View Corridor in West Valley City, Utah. Both a roadway and shared-use path were added during the project, as well as 14 mainline bridges and seven pedestrian bridges.  

A two-mile shared use path was built to add a safe space for walking, biking and other activities. Multiple access points were constructed to allow local users easy access to the path. In addition, the team installed 35 decorative lamps and 110 trees posts as part of the project.

Staker Parson employs nearly 2,500 people at more than 70 locations in Utah, Idaho, Nevada and Oregon. Its operations include Jack B. Parson Ready Mix Concrete, Idaho Materials & Construction, Western Rock Products, Hales Sand & Gravel, Burdick Materials, Reynolds Excavation and Nielson Construction & Materials.
