I-80 UPDATES 

Reduced Speed Limit

To accommodate a safer work zone, the speed limit on I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East and I-215 from 3300 South to 4500 South has been reduced to 55 miles per hour. The speed limit will remain at 55 miles per hour through the end of construction.

New I-80 Lane Shift

Crews shifted lanes to the outside of I-80 between 1300 East and 2300 East in both directions to accommodate reconstruction work in the median. Traffic will remain shifted in this pattern through summer 2021. 

This is the first of several major lane shifts planned on I-80 as part of the project. Shifting traffic around the active work zones will allow crews to work during both day and night to complete the project by the end of 2022 while keeping traffic moving. View the image below for more details about this first lane shift.

Drivers can expect uneven pavement in the travel lanes, including drainage grates. They should use caution in the work zone and follow the posted speed limit. To see real-time traffic conditions, visit UDOT Traffic.
