[ARCHIVED] Road Construction Projects in Draper - Update 7/22/2016

12300 South (UDOT)

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.

Draper Parkway – 12300 South from 970 East to 1300 East

Construction work to resurface Draper Parkway (12300 South) from 1300 East to the light rail crossing at 970 East is nearly complete. Final striping will be applied by Tuesday July 19th. The road will remain open in both directions and all public and private accesses off of Draper Parkway will remain open during construction. For more information on this project, call Todd Hammond at Draper City at (801) 576-6565.

300 East

300 East is now under construction and closed to through traffic from Pioneer Road to Carlquist Drive. The road is scheduled to reopen on August 15th. Any residents not living directly off of 300 East should use an alternate route during the road closure. The round-a-bout at 13400 S. will be closed for reconstruction beginning at 7:00 a.m. on 7/28 and will reopen by 7:00 a.m. on 8/1. Construction of the sidewalk north of Pheasant View Drive will begin on 7/18 and will continue through 7/30. Driveway access may be limited as the concrete cures.

1300 East Right Turn Lane onto Highland Drive

Construction to add an exclusive right turn lane from southbound on 1300 East to westbound on Highland Drive has begun. Traffic delays on Highland Drive and 1300 East should be minimal. Pedestrian traffic will be detoured around the construction, but will remain open. The project should be completed by August 15th.

Manilla Drive (UPDATE)

The previously announced project to construct a new storm drain line on Manilla Dr. from Manti Dr. to Traverse Ridge Rd. has been postponed to the spring of 2017.

New 600 West Interchange on Bangerter Highway (UDOT)

All lanes of traffic will be open on Bangerter from Friday to Tuesday for Pioneer Day. Have a happy and safe holiday!
July 29 - August 1, crews will finish concrete rehabilitation on the eastbound Bangerter to southbound I-15 on-ramp. Work will take place between Friday at 11 pm and Monday morning at 6 am. No right turns will be allowed at the on-ramp during this time and work will take place around the clock. Motorists may use the 12300 South exit to make a u-turn and head southbound on I-15. Westbound Bangerter to southbound I-15 will still be accessible. The new concrete requires time to cure. Due to this, crews will not always be working during the closure. This cure time is necessary and plays an important role in the strength development and durability of the concrete.

The weekend of August 5 - 8, crews will be doing concrete rehabilitation on the I-15 northbound to eastbound Bangerter off-ramp. 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 the 12300 South or 14600 South exits in order to make the right turn and head eastbound. Northbound I-15 to westbound Bangerter will still be accessible.

14600 South Bridge (UDOT)

The night of July 28 crews plan to shift 14600 South lanes to their final configuration. Motorists should expect a new traffic configuration on Friday morning representing a major milestone on the project.

The weekend of July 29 and the weekend of August 5, crews plan to restrict southbound I-15 to one lane near the 14600 South bridge while they place a sealant, which is meant to increase the longevity of the bridge. Plan ahead to avoid delays.
Lane closures will begin at 8:00 p.m. and all lanes will reopen by 10:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. All lanes will reopen by 5:00 a.m. Monday morning.

Bangerter Highway On- and Off-Ramps

As soon as July 28 and 29 crews plan to place pavement on the Bangerter northbound off-ramp. Expect nighttime single lane closures in this area.
