Engineering Projects


We have hired CRS Engineering to design the Flat Iron Well House and Pickle Ball Court. We held a kickoff meeting with our consultant on October 9, 2019.  We have met with our consultant to go over the 90 percent design documents. We are in process of pre-qualifying contractors for this project. Only pre-qualified contractors will be allowed to submit a bid. We anticipate construction on the pickle ball court to begin in March 2020. Well House construction is planned to begin May 2020.

Sandy City completed a Concept Plan for Dry Creek in 2018. The purpose of the Dry Creek Improvements project is to complete critical infrastructure improvements along the Dry Creek corridor to 1) eliminate flooding potential in the Sandy Cairns downtown area, 2) restore the channel and convert it from an overgrown hazard to a central feature of the Sandy Cairns downtown area with recreational features including open space, trails, and the Art Walk, and 3) provide demonstrations for public education along the corridor of Low Impact Development (LID), water conservation, and water quality Best Management Practices (BMPs).

November 6, 2019: We have been communicating with the contractor regarding the remaining items to be completed. These should be completed within the next couple of weeks. Once they are completed and we have received all project closeout documents from the contractor, final payment will be made and the project will be closed out. 

If you would like more information, please contact Tyler Shelley at 801-568-7285.


A Notice to Proceed was issued to Whitaker Construction for the project and a pre-construction meeting was held in December 2019. We have continued coordinating with utility companies and the contractor regarding miscellaneous pre-construction items. Notices were sent to residents and businesses with information related to the project including project location/information as well as road closure details.

Construction began on the project last week. (Dec. 30th) Traffic control has been set up and traffic through the Sonic Drive-In has been routed to accommodate the construction in the parking lot. Whitaker has started excavating to construct the junction structure on the downstream end of the project (west side of Sonic Drive-In and just east of State Street). The contractor plans to begin installing the 6-foot x 4-foot box culvert through the Sonic parking lot over the next couple of weeks.

We have been working over the last several years to complete necessary storm drain projects and convert the Sandy Canal corridor into a trail system. The trail has been completed from the south end of the Sandy City, up to 10600 South. Salt Lake County has completed design for and will bid out this summer, a project that includes a bridge across Dimple Dell and trail improvements from Carnation Drive to Bear Park. We are collaborating with White City Metro Township on a project to complete trail and drainage improvements along the Sandy Canal corridor from 10600 South to Dimple Dell. This project will connect the completed trail at 10600 South to the County project at Carnation Drive.

Black Forest Paving completed grading of the drainage swale and trail as well as the overflow storm drain piping to Dry Creek. Before road base and asphalt were installed, several concerns were raised.  A revised plan and set of drawings for the project is currently being worked on. We will be meeting with Sunrise Engineering, Salt Lake County Engineering, and White City to discuss the revisions and plan for the work that will need to be done in the spring to complete the project. We expect that construction will begin again around the middle to the end of March 2020 and be completed in April or May 2020.
