The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) plans to renew I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East and I-215 between 3300 South and 4500 South. The pavement will be removed and replaced with new concrete in these road sections, and a new lane will be added to eastbound I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East, within UDOT's existing operational right-of-way.
The project also includes:
Demolition and reconstruction of the 1300 East and 1700 East bridges over I-80
Demolition and reconstruction of the I-80 bridge over 2000 East
Widening of the I-80 bridge over 2300 East to accommodate the new eastbound lane
This project is being done to replace aging pavement and bridges, reduce congestion, enhance safety and improve bike and pedestrian crossings. An online Public Hearing was held Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2020. Click here for a recording of the meeting and supporting documentation.
The project is scheduled to go out for award to a design-build contractor in late 2020, with construction scheduled to begin in 2021. The design-build process means that design and construction will happen simultaneously, allowing UDOT and the contractor to include the most innovative and current construction solutions while ensuring a quality product.
