I-80 UPDATES 

Eastbound I-80 Lane Shift

1700 East to 2300 East

Crews completed reconstructing the median of I-80 between 1700 East and 2300 East in mid-April 2022. The team will begin the next phase of work in this section, which includes reconstructing the eastbound I-80 lanes. 

The eastbound I-80 travel lanes between 1700 East and 2300 East in Salt Lake City will be shifted onto new concrete in the median. This lane shift will give the team space to reconstruct this section of I-80 while keeping traffic moving. 

The lane shift is scheduled to begin as early as Sunday, April 24, 2022, and will be in place through fall 2022.

While this work occurs, construction vehicles will frequently enter and exit the work zone from I-80 and I-215. Follow the reduced speed limit and give drivers plenty of room.

To complete the next phase of work, eastbound I-80 travel lanes between 1300 East and 1700 East shifted to the median in October 2021. This lane shift will accommodate reconstruction work on eastbound I-80 in this section.   

Traffic will remain shifted in this pattern through fall 2022.
