South Valley Connector Drone Update

November 20, 2015

This video shows a drivable roadway that connects Bannock Highway to South 5th Avenue. The entire roadway is paved and striped. Footage begins on the west side of the project near Bannock Hwy and the UPRR Bridge. The drainage pond is complete with vegetation growing. There is now a path that connects the 10-ft wide multi-use path along South Valley Road to the path on top of the levee. This path continues south to Edson Fichter Pond. Guardrail has been installed at the edges of the roadway along the embankment to the UPRR Bridge. Recently poured concrete parapets are covered to protect them from cold weather. All of the bridge fencing has been installed. The video continues to the east. The concrete MSE wall panels have been painted to match the natural colors of the lava cliffs. Along the roadway on top of the cliff, the contractor continues to install signs and check dams in the swales. The AMI-Kirkham Trail now connects to the new multi-use path along South Valley Road. The video continues to the east where the contractor is installing the deck pans and rebar to the I-15 Southbound Bridge. The concrete deck will be poured on December 1, 2015. The video ends at the signal on South 5th Ave.
