Q: Why is UDOT constructing grade-separated interchanges on Bangerter Highway?
A: The existing intersections serve the fast-growing area of western Salt Lake County and the new interchanges will reduce congestion and improve traffic flow along Bangerter Highway and the east-west arterial roads. This is the eighth of many Bangerter Highway intersections that UDOT plans to replace with interchanges over the next 20 years.
Q: Which Bangerter intersection is being studied next?
A: Each intersection was evaluated and prioritized based on a number of factors including crash data, operational safety, and potential for reduced congestion. Click here to review the planned interchanges on Bangerter Highway and the prioritization for each.
Q: What does it mean if I own property within the Bangerter study area?
A: During the State Environmental Study, right-of-way impacts will be evaluated within the study area based on the preferred interchange design. However, not all properties located within the study area will be affected. UDOT will only purchase the property needed to safely build and operate the new interchange.
A member of the project team will be in direct contact with potentially impacted property owners and renters to provide information and answer questions. Required property acquisitions will likely occur after completion of the State Environmental Study in accordance to state and federal relocation processes and procedures.
