INTERCHANGE CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY
Project update: July 2, 2020
HOLIDAY WORK HOURS
During the Fourth of July holiday weekend, crews will suspend all traffic impacts on Thursday, July 2, 3 p.m., and resume on Monday, July 6, 7 a.m.
There may be construction activities in the work zone away from traffic with no impacts to the traveling public.
Southbound on- and off-ramp construction
Crews have shifted traffic to the east side of Bangerter to begin work activities to reconstruct the southbound on- and off-ramps on the west side of Bangerter. Crews are removing existing concrete, and clearing and grubbing in preparation for future pavement.
This traffic shift will be in place through late 2020.
Drivers are advised to note changing traffic patterns and traffic control measures such as barrels and signs.
Northbound on- and off-ramp construction
Crews are bringing in embankment and removing existing drainage and sewer lines in preparation for the new on- and off-ramps.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
As part of its efforts to keep traffic moving on Bangerter Highway now and into the future, UDOT will build freeway-style interchanges at 6200, 10400, and 12600 South. This is a continuation of UDOT’s multi-year effort to upgrade Bangerter Highway and the east-west arterial roads in order to meet the traffic demands of western Salt Lake County.
During these unprecedented times, safety remains our top priority and we have been following the Governor’s mandate to take bold, aggressive steps to slow the spread of disease. Our project team is working hard to maintain a heightened awareness and proper social distancing methods while still moving forward with construction activities.
