14600 South Construction Trestle Area
Sunday, June 11, 2017 a contractor (Beck Construction) working for UDOT rebuilt a portion of 14600 South. This was next to the rail road bridge (trestle) where faults/deep creeps had developed in the asphalt along a portion of the road next to the steep embankment that is over 4 homes in Springview Farms.
The contractor excavated at least 5 feet of road uncovering a bit of history as defined by the layers of pavement that were uncovered. The excavation was not as deep as the flowline of the Salt Lake City Canal that is on the east side on the road. The contractor uncovered several layers of pavement including a concrete slab, base course and an old asphalt concrete surface that was disintegrating at the bottom of the five foot excavation. The asphalt concrete could have been placed in the late 1800s or early 1900s.
The material excavated had some moisture but not sufficient to cause concern. The contractor repaired the road by placing a layer of cobble rocks of various depth (2ft-5ft) of 4-inch minus rocks covered by geotextile fabric covered by 8-inch of untreated base and eventual new 6-inch of asphalt pavement.
The patch extended for 40 feet from about the center of the road to the edge. This is a temporary fix to provide better protection. UDOT and the City plan on meeting to discuss the possible options for better studying the area and provide a permanent solution.
