About This Project

SUE Solutions and its staff successfully completed the utility investigations for this UDOT Region One project located in Ogden, Utah. SUE Solutions contracted with the project’s design consultant and UDOT Region One to provide subsurface utility engineering in the form of Quality Level D (existing utility owner mapping research), Quality Level C (sewer and storm drain data collection), Quality Level B (designating), and Quality Level A (test holes) for this project. The project added dual left turn lanes on all legs of the intersection to help ease traffic congestion. SUE Solutions approached the project with the goal of identifying utilities with completeness, while also considering associated costs. Since no road reconstruction was to take place, SUE Solutions established a program focusing its Quality Level B designating for only the areas outside of the hard surface area (from shoulder stripe(s) and into adjacent properties), which allowed UDOT and the design consultant to maximize the budget. SUE Solutions also worked closely with UDOT’s survey staff to accurately capture the Quality Level B designations. Upon completion of the Quality Level B investigations, SUE Solutions designated approximately 20,850 feet of existing underground utilities to Quality level B specifications and completed the gathering of data and information for approximately 7,365 feet of sewer and storm drain facilities (Quality Level C). In addition, SUE Solutions also completed nine (9) test holes at critical locations within the project gathering crucial utility information, vital to the project’s design. Utilities designated and located included culinary water, natural gas, electrical, phone, fiber optics, and CATV. SUE Solutions was able to complete the SUE investigations ahead of schedule and on budget.
