INTERCHANGE CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY
PROJECT UPDATE JUNE 17, 2021
As early as the week of July 5, crews will set bridge girders at the new overpass. This work will take place for two nights and will require a full closure of 6200 South while crews complete the work. A designated detour will be in place for drivers navigating the area.
Bangerter Highway will remain open to drivers during this work. Right-hand turns on and off Bangerter Highway to/from 6200 South will be allowed.
Mainline bridge construction
Crews have recently begun construction of the grade-separated overpass on mainline Bangerter and northbound/southbound on- and off-ramps. Activities include:
Base placement, grading and compaction
Noise wall installation continues on the east and west sides of Bangerter Highway.
6200 South pedestrian bridge
Crews continue work on the pedestrian bridge in front of Fox Hills Elementary.
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.
PEDESTRIAN ACCESS AT 6200 SOUTH
Signed detour in place through winter 2021
During construction, east-west crossings of 6200 South at Bangerter Highway is prohibited to pedestrians and cyclists. A signed detour is in place and pedestrians/cyclists are advised to use alternate routes in order to avoid construction activities.
This detour will be in place through winter 2021.

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.
