Employee Memorial

UDOT is truly grateful for the dedicated workers who put their lives at risk every day to improve and maintain Utah’s highways, byways, and canyons. Sadly, since 1979, eight UDOT employees have lost their lives in the line of duty.

There is a memorial located behind the UDOT Central Offices at the Calvin Rampton Complex in Taylorsville, UT.

This memorial honors those employees and serves as a reminder that the safety of workers is never overlooked or unappreciated. In work zones, roadways and canyons, we depend upon each other to keep every person safe.
