UDOT has begun construction work on an asphalt resurfacing project on 12300 South from State Street to 700 East. This project is scheduled for completion by mid August. Construction of the new asphalt will be done on July 29th through July 31st. During these three days, crews will be working 24 hours a day and the road will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Business access may be intermittently limited to one access per business during these three days, as construction progresses through the project. Before and after these three days, traffic restrictions will be minimal and all public and private accesses off of 12300 South will remain open. For more information about this project, call (801) 904-4064.

New 600 West Interchange on Bangerter Highway (UDOT)
Next week, crews will repair potholes on the Bangerter and I-15 bridge deck. The weekend of July 15-18, crews will be doing concrete rehabilitation on the I-15 northbound off-ramp on Bangerter. Work will take place between Friday at 11 pm and Monday morning at 6 am. No right turns will be allowed at the off-ramp during this time and work will take place around the clock. Motorists may use 12300 South or 14600 South exits in order to make the right turn and head eastbound. UDOT is constructing a new interchange on Bangerter Highway at 600 West.

On the nights of July 10 and July 13 crews are scheduled to place concrete pavement and perform barrier work on the northbound Bangerter off-ramp.
