PROJECT UPDATE Nov. 25, 2020
HOLIDAY WORK HOURS
During the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, crews will suspend all traffic impacts on Wednesday, Nov. 25, 4 p.m., and resume on Monday, Nov. 30, 7 a.m.
There may be construction activities in the work zone away from traffic but with no impacts to the traveling public.
Southbound on- and off-ramp construction
Traffic has shifted to the east side of Bangerter Highway and will remain in place through late 2020.
Pipe crews are working to install new storm drain pipe and boxes for the new interchange and ramp drainage.
Noise wall installation on the west side of Bangerter is ongoing and is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
Temporary barrier is currently in place on southbound Bangerter between 10400 South and 11400 South to facilitate utility relocations on the west side.
10400 South utility relocations
Crews are performing utility relocations directly on 10400 South as preparatory work for upcoming excavation activities. Utility work includes water and irrigation transmission pipelines, power distribution, sewer, telecommunication, and gas facilities.
Construction activities are ongoing day and night. Residents, businesses, and drivers should be aware of trucks entering and exiting the work zone, as well as noise, dust, vibration, and nighttime construction lighting.
Drivers and pedestrians are advised to note reduced speeds of 45 mph, changing traffic patterns, and on-site construction activities and equipment while navigating in the area
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.
