CONSTRUCTION BEGINS SPRING 2020
Project update, June 19, 2020:
Northbound/Southbound ramp construction
Crews are constructing the new ramps on both northbound/southbound Bangerter Highway. This includes road base placement, temporary pavement, and temporary striping.
In early July, crews will shift traffic to the southbound ramps.
Road base will be placed on the northbound on-and off-ramps in late June.
Dixie Drive reconstruction
Utility relocations, road base placement, and curb and gutter placement are underway in preparation for roadway realignment.
These work activities may lead to increased noise, dust, and vibration for nearby residents and businesses.
Drivers and pedestrians are advised to note changing traffic patterns and on-site construction activities and equipment while navigating Dixie Drive and the Dixie Valley Shopping Mall.
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.

Schedules and milestones are now tentative and subject to change.
