UDOT Selects Farmington Bay Constructors for West Davis Highway

UDOT selected Farmington Bay Constructors to design and build the new 16-mile West Davis Highway. The $475 million construction contract makes this the department’s largest current project.

Farmington Bay Constructors (FBC), a joint venture of Ames Construction, Wadsworth Brothers Construction, and Staker Parson Materials and Construction, was selected from a shortlist of three design-build teams. Design for the highway began in early 2021 and construction began in the spring, with expected completion in 2024. 

“FBC has shown that they share UDOT’s commitment to enhancing quality of life by keeping Utah moving,” UDOT Project Director Rex Harris said. “Their proposal provided the best value through innovation, safety, quality, and reduced impacts to local communities – at a very competitive cost.”    

The West Davis Highway will improve access to and from I-15 for residents and businesses in western Davis County. It is expected to reduce congestion on local streets west of I-15 by 30 percent or more. The four-lane divided highway will run from I-15 in Farmington to 4500 West and the future extension of S.R. 193 in West Point, and includes six new interchanges.
