CONSTRUCTION BEGINS SPRING 2020
Project update, July 10, 2020:
Southbound on- and off-ramp construction
Traffic has shifted to the east side of Bangerter and will remain in place through late 2020.
Crews have begun work activities to reconstruct the southbound on- and off-ramps on the west side of Bangerter. This includes sawcutting of existing roadway, demo and removal of curb and gutter, and roadway excavation. Temporary fence will also be installed at the northwest quadrant.
Drivers are advised to note changing traffic patterns and traffic control measures such as barrels and signs.
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.

Schedules and milestones are now tentative and subject to change.
