INTERCHANGE CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY
PROJECT UPDATE JANUARY 21, 2022
Crews have opened left turn movements on and off Bangerter at 6200 South. All three travel lanes on mainline Bangerter are open in each direction. During the month, there will be changing traffic patterns at the interchange while crews continue construction activities which include:
Concrete barrier installation on 6200 South
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 are advised to note reduced speeds of 45 mph, changing traffic patterns, uneven road surface, and on-site construction activities and equipment while navigating in the area.
PEDESTRIAN ACCESS AT 6200 SOUTH
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 early Spring 2022.

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.
