The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will improve 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 throughout, 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.
This project is being done to replace aging pavement and to enhance safety and reduce congestion by adding a fourth lane to eastbound I-80. Bike and pedestrian crossings along I-80 will be improved as well.
This is a design-build project, meaning the design and construction will happen simultaneously, which allows UDOT and the contractor to include the most innovative and current construction solutions while ensuring a quality product.
Additional improvements will include:
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
Construction is scheduled to begin as early as May 2021 and continue through 2022.
