PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is improving 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 began in mid-May 2021 and will 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.
