Utah Olympic Park
Morgan Asphalt was thrilled with the opportunity to work on the recreation of aerial ski jumps at Utah’s Olympic Park in Park City. This once-in-a-lifetime project consisted of re-grading a steep slope and removing all existing footings before installing 180 individual spot footings at specified grades for a newer, steeper, and longer jump.
Morgan had to employ some nontraditional methods—such as a hammer hoe to chip away rock and a telebelt to assist in getting materials to areas where traditional equipment was unable to reach—in an effort to counter the difficulties that arose from both winter conditions and the steep and rocky terrain. That flexibility and willingness to explore different options ultimately ensured that Morgan was able to keep to and even exceed the owner’s scheduling requirements. Morgan Asphalt is grateful to have had a role in the completion of this unique project.
