In the coming weeks,Fruit Heights City will be awarding its 2019 - 2020 Capital Projects.  Below is a list of those capital projects that will be impacting various areas of the City this Summer.  If you have any questions relating to any on these projects, please contact the Fruit Heights City Offices at 801-546-0861 or email the City Manager at bgreen@fruitheightscity.com.  


Ellison Farms Water Line Replacement
Project Bid Date: June 3, 2019
Awarded Contractor: Toncco Inc. 
Bid Amount: $996,685.00
    • Due to very wet and highly corrosive soils in the Ellison Farms Subdivision, the City will be replacing the 8" ductile iron water main with a new 8" PVC C-900 water main.  This project will affect various areas of the Ellison Farms Subdivision.  This project is necessary due to the number of water line breaks that have occurred over the past 18 months.  Residents that live in this section of the City should expect water service interruptions during construction as well as limited access into and out of your homes during construction times, so please plan accordingly.  The contractor will see that homeowners will have access into their homes and be able to park vehicles in your garages/driveways each night.    
Green Road & Country Lane: Curb, Gutter, and Sidewalk installation
Project Bid Date: June 3, 2019
Awarded Contractor: Post Construction Company
Bid Amount: $319,161.25
    • Fruit Heights City was awarded a grant to help install sidewalk along Green Road and Country Lane.  This project is being completed in preparation for the improvements that are scheduled to occur along HWY-89.  In addition to sidewalk being installed, the City will also be installing curb and gutter in those areas where it does not currently exist.  This will provide a safe route for pedestrians as they walk through this area of the City and also provide school children a safe route to school. 
Nicholls Road Culinary Water Line Replacement:
Project Bid Date: June 3, 2019
Awarded Contractor: Sorensen Construction Inc. 
Bid Amount: $744,153.00  

    • The City will be replacing the Culinary Water Main that runs down Nicholls Road between Mountain Road and HWY-89 with a new 10" PVC C-900 water main.  The City has a need to complete this project prior to the HWY-89 project so that culinary water service to residents on the East and West Sides of HWY-89 has minimum service interruptions.  Residents that travel Nicholls Road, or that live in this area, should expect traffic delays, limited access, and occasional road closures, however, Nicholls Road will remain open during the construction period. 
Nicholls Road Secondary Water Line Replacement:  (THIS IS A HAIGHTS CREEK IRRIGATION PROJECT)
Contractor: Morley Construction  
Bid Amount: 
    • Haights Creek Irrigation Company will be replacing their secondary water line in Nicholls Road.  It is expected that this project will begin the first part of June and will last for approximately 30 days.  Residents that travel Nicholls Road, or that live in this  area, should expect traffic delays, limited access, and occasional road closures, however, Nicholls Road will remain open during the construction period.    
       
Once these projects have been awarded, the City will have a better idea of the anticipated start dates for each of the projects.  So residents have current information, updates will be made to the City's website.  We ask all residents to plan their travels accordingly as they may be periods of time when access into neighborhoods and homes will be limited.  The City will also contact Davis County Sheriffs Office and Kaysville Fire Department notifying them of these construction projects so that they are able to plan accordingly in the event of an emergency.
