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.
