 Layton Canal Update

Syracuse_Layton Canal Trail Closures
Layton Canal relocation began in Syracuse in fall 2020. A section of the existing irrigation pipeline is being relocated to accommodate construction of the West Davis Corridor highway. The canal is operated by the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District and delivers irrigation water to local farmers. Crews expect to complete work by April 2021 prior to the spring irrigation season. West Davis Corridor (WDC) mainline construction is expected to begin in spring 2021.

Sections of the Syracuse Trail are temporarily closed through early spring 2021 to maintain public safety through work zones. Detours are noted on the map below. Crews are also boring underneath the intersection of 3000 West/Tryall Drive to install pipe casings, which has required a temporary closure of the intersection. Northbound traffic is detoured to St. Andrews Drive and southbound traffic is detoured to Bluff Road. The road will reopen as boring operations and roadway restoration are completed.

For more information, please contact Andy Neff with the project public involvement team at 801-419-9554. Updates will also be posted to the West Davis Corridor website:

Weber Basin Water Conservancy District’s construction contractor is working to install irrigation piping parallel to Bluff Road for the relocation of the Layton Canal. This work is being done in preparation for construction of the West Davis Corridor, which will begin in spring 2021.

Traffic flagging operations will be effective at Gleneagles Drive/St. Andrews Drive during daytime hours on Thursday and Friday (Feb. 18-19) and Monday and Tuesday (Feb. 22-23) to accommodate utility relocation work. Delays are expected to be minimal.

The project team appreciates your patience as this work is completed. Please reach out to Andy Neff with their public involvement team at 801-419-9554 with any questions.

UDOT Project 

West Davis Corridor

Construction crews have begun preliminary land clearing for the Layton Canal Pipeline relocation in Syracuse. A section of the existing irrigation pipeline is being relocated to accommodate construction of the West Davis Corridor highway. The work area follows along the west side of the Bluff Road diagonal alignment between Schneiter's Golf Course in West Point to Freemont Park in Syracuse. Pipeline work will continue through winter and is expected to be complete by April 1, 2021. West Davis Corridor (WDC) construction is expected to begin in early 2021 and continue through Dec 2024.

 To minimize traffic impacts, crews will bore lines under major roadways. Bore pit excavation will begin in the next few weeks at 3000 West/Tryall Drive and 700 South for crews to install pipe casings. Traffic flagging operations are happening for utility potholing operations. 

 This is not a city project, however more information is available by contacting the WDC public information team at 877-298-1991, or on the project website:



Trees provide shade and appeal, but require proper maintenance to remain healthy. In order to protect trees that extend over the sidewalks and roadways from being damaged by vehicles and pedestrians, trees must be pruned to allow a clearance of seven feet over a sidewalk and eleven feet over a street.
