It’ll create freeway-style interchanges in Farmington, Kaysville, Layton and Syracuse. The West Davis project will also include 10 miles of new trail, eventually connecting Emigration Trail to Legacy Parkway.

Besides the retaining walls for a future highway, regular pile driving on the road is set to begin Feb. 16 and continue until late in the month. Project trucks will be entering along East Frontage Road at 1470 South and exiting at 1700 South. Flagging operations will be in place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
