July 23, 2015


Owner: Utah Department of Transportation

General Contractor: Burdick Materials

Completion Date: November 2012

Location: Vernal, Utah

US-40 through Vernal is the life line for the oil, gas, and mining industries that service the Uintah Basin and the Main Street through beautiful downtown Vernal. Due to the high level of heavy truck traffic, much of US-40 along the route was severely rutted with two major intersections in dire need of repair.

The two things that truly set this project apart from are the partnering effort of Burdick Materials, Civco Engineering, UDOT and the local community and the effort taken by the contractor to minimize the impact to the affected businesses.
