Ralph L Wadsworth Construction Company (RLW) has won a $94m contract from the Utah Department of Transportation (UDoT) to build an Express Lane extension on I-15 from Layton to Riverdale.

Under the contract, RLW will be responsible for constructing a new Express Lane on I-15 from Milepost 331 to Milepost 340. RLW is a subsidiary of Sterling Construction Company (STRL).

The contract also includes widening of the existing I-15 stretch, along with the widening and replacement of eight bridge decks, as well as full replacement of two bridges.

The contract also includes installation of various new retaining walls, in addition to drainage upgrades, pavement rehabilitation, landscaping, and signage improvements.

“We’re confident that this $94m award will make a meaningful contribution to Sterling’s profitability in the back-half of 2019 and through most of 2020.”

Upon completion of the project, approximately 80 miles of Express Lanes will be connected from Spanish Fork to Riverdale.

Sterling CEO Joe Cutillo said: “RLW continues to strengthen its momentum in Utah with yet another impressive project award.

“We value our strong relationship with UDoT and are pleased to have the opportunity to better meet the needs of commuters as I-15 is the main transportation facility and primary commuter route that links Davis and Weber county. Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

“Our Utah business has a successful track record of executing and completing large, high profile projects, and we’re confident that this $94m award will make a meaningful contribution to Sterling’s profitability in the back-half of 2019 and through most of 2020.”

Sterling is based in Delaware. It specialises in highways, roads, bridges, airfields, ports, light rail, water, wastewater and storm drainage systems projects.
