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 replaced with new concrete throughout, and a new lane will be added to eastbound I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East.
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
Improvements to existing bike and pedestrian crossings at I-80
This project is being done to replace aging infrastructure, reduce congestion and enhance safety.
Construction is scheduled to begin as early as May 2021 and continue through 2022.
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.
Crews have started preliminary work in the shoulders of I-80 and I-215 with single lane closures beginning on I-215 starting Monday, April 19, 2021. Visit udot.utah.gov/traffic/ for real-time impacts.
