To alleviate traffic congestion from I-15 amid the population growth north of Salt Lake City, the Utah Department of Transportation constructed the Legacy Parkway.


The new highway was contracted in three design-build projects to encourage industry competition and since the parkway was a new design concept in the United States.

Throughout the project, N-12 remained the pipe of choice of the engineers.

A key component was a long-lasting highway life. With the Great Salt Lake nearby, the stormwater system needed to provide a sustainable infrastructure. N-12 pipe has the ability to withstand the soil’s corrosive nature, whereas concrete or steel pipe would corrode.

N-12 was also the pipe of choice because of its structural strength, durability and competitive costs.
