Nielson Construction La Sal Loop Road project

September 21, 2017


Nielson Construction is currently working on the La Sal Loop Road project in the La Sal Mountains in Utah and is expected to be completed later this year. This is an ongoing Federal Highway project located just east of Moab.

This challenging project includes a 1,400 foot long MSE retaining wall, 80,000 cubic yards of excavation, 60,000 tons of aggregate road base, and 25,000 tons of HMA asphalt.

The project covers 13 miles of road grade that is being reconstructed through rough country with elevation differences of over 2,000 feet within the project limits.
