Utah-Based Construction Company Completes Major Idaho Road Project12/22/2010
Springville-based W.W. Clyde completes project nearly four months ahead of schedule
TWIN FALLS, Idaho—A new roadway opened to motorists last night in Twin Falls, Idaho to provide a bypass option for trucks and commercial traffic traveling past Twin Falls. Springville, Utah-based W.W. Clyde & Co. constructed the $26.6-million roadway, known as the U.S.-93 Twin Falls Alternate Route project. The new road opened nearly four months early.
"The substantial completion of this new roadway marks several milestones for both the Twin Falls community and the construction industry," said W.W. Clyde Operations Manager Dustin Olson, who was also the project sponsor. "The completion of this brand-new roadway is something the residents of Twin Falls, as well as those who travel through the area frequently, have been anxiously awaiting for years. Additionally, through innovative construction approaches and technology, we were able to deliver this project four months ahead of schedule."
The Twin Falls Alternate Route project is a 5.5-mile roadway connecting the U.S.-93/U.S.-30 junction to north Twin Falls. The project included a four-lane roadway and a flyover bridge for the eastbound traffic from the Filer/Buhl, Idaho area.
W.W. Clyde joined the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce and the Idaho Transportation Department for a ribbon cutting ceremony last Wednesday. The ceremony took place on the brand-new Rock Creek Bridge, which was part of the project.
Other road projects recently completed by W.W. Clyde include the Pioneer Crossing and I-15/Beck Street projects in American Fork, Utah and North Salt Lake, Utah, respectively. Additionally, the firm is currently completing, among other projects, a $19-million pipeline project in Provo, Utah for the Central Utah Water Conservancy District.
