Major Growth in Vineyard, Utah

J-U-B Orem is seeing the results of their labors on a project covering over 3,200 acres city-wide. 

Prior to 2002, Vineyard was a small town with one main street and one small City building.

In 2005, Geneva Steel Plant’s 1,750 acres was sold to a private developer with extensive building plans.  Acting as the City Engineer, J-U-B was key in guiding the City through an aggressive growth and development period. Now in 2017, building is in full swing and the City of Vineyard looks nothing like it did 15 years ago.

There have been nearly 20 phases to the project thus far with several still to come.  Phases included: road improvements, a roundabout, public safety building, sewer lift stations, detention basins, an overpass, as well as water, pressure, gravity irrigation, storm drain, land drain, sewer and power lines.

Two unique challenges were:

  • Building road and utility infrastructure through the old steel mill site and avoiding concrete building foundations.
  • Putting a sewer and water line underneath the Union Pacific and UTA Frontrunner railroad tracks through an existing water transmission tunnel that was used by Geneva Steel to move water from a cooling pond to a power plant.
