Draper, Utah - The Draper City Council awarded a construction contract to S&L Inc. for the right turn lane project on 1300 E. Highland Dr. The unanimous decision was reached during the June 22 city council meeting.
According to Public Works Director Glade Robbins, the project is adding a right turn lane coming southbound on 1300 East to turn onto Highland Drive.
“The crosswalk will be relocated to the east side and there will be modifications to the trail and the crosswalk,” Robbins said. “This is also a project that will extend to the west so there will be a left hand turn on Rambling Road.”
Robbins explained S&L Inc. was the lowest bidder at $300,087.90. The highest bid was $407,479.05 from an unnamed entity.
The budget for the project is $330,000 and will be financed from the general fund and B&C funds. The construction agreement with S&L Inc. included a 25 percent contingency per agreement.
Mayor Troy Walker approved the decision to create a right turn lane.
“It’s definitely going to relieve some stress in that intersection,” Walker said. “It’s money well spent to be sure.”
