7000 South Utility Project - Phase 1, 2 and 3 Project Description

 

7000 South Phase 2 and 3 Construction Flier

The City of West Jordan is managing three phases of work along 7000 South. Phase one was completed during the 2016 construction season. Phases 2 and 3 begin in February 2017. The work includes upgrades to various utility systems, including the storm water collection system, sanitary sewer collection system, culinary water distribution system, and installing a secondary water transmission system. 

Storm Drain:  The storm drain improvements will be performed between the Jordan River and Constitution Park (3200 West).  Improvements include installing an upgraded pipeline and box culvert, and additional water collection boxes, and creating a detention basin at Constitution Park.  These changes will increase storm drain capacity and improve drainage on 7000 South. (Phase one between the Jordan River and 1300 West was completed during the 2016 construction season.)

Sanitary Sewer:  The sewer improvements will be performed between 1300 West and Bangerter Highway. Improvements include upgrading and consolidating existing pipes.

4 Interchanges - UDOT Page

The Utah Department of Transportation is taking more steps toward slowly converting Bangerter Highway into a freeway.

UDOT has launched an environmental study needed to convert four intersections into freeway-like interchanges, at 5400 South, 7000 South, 9000 South and 11400 South.

Pending the outcome of the study, conversion of those intersections into interchanges is expected to begin next year — and UDOT seeks completion by the fall of 2018.  For additional information go to www.udot.utah.gov/go/bangerterstudy.
