MIDVALE, Utah (ABC4 News) – UDOT and Habitat for Humanity partnered up to reuse materials from homes scheduled for demolition.
Habitat for Humanity volunteers started work this week to remove building materials such as doors, windows, cabinets and light fixtures from several UDOT owned homes in the Midvale area.
These homes are scheduled for demolition to accommodate a future expansion project on I-15 northbound between 9000 South and the I-215 interchange.
The reclaimed building materials will be sold through Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in Salt Lake City.
Sale proceeds will help fund Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to build homes for those in need.
Over the past five years, UDOT and Habitat for Humanity have partnered to reclaim materials from almost 130 houses.
Most houses claimed by UDOT are part of their many construction projects including Mountain View Corridor and widening I-15 and Bangerter Highway.
