For the past 10 years, Newell has been the project manager of the Mountain View Corridor, taking it from early design through completion of its first $730 million phase last December.

That highway in western Salt Lake County offers a 15-mile stretch of two lanes of traffic in each direction between 16000 South and 5400 South at roughly 5800 West. Lanes are widely separated now, and lanes of a future freeway will be built in the extra-wide median.

Before her work on Mountain View, Newell was a project manager for UDOT Region 2 in Salt Lake, Tooele and Summit counties. She previously also managed a staff of 120 as the operations director for Salt Lake County.

Newell received her civil engineering degree from Iowa State University.
