Adding lanes, one direction at a timeUncategorized, by Catherine Higgins.
5400 South Flex Lanes will reduce rush-hour delay for west-east drivers
Adding lanes to a busy road can be cost prohibitive, especially during lean economic times. Nevertheless, traffic delay is frustrating and expensive for commuters and drivers who move goods and services.
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has an innovative solution that will ease the commute on 5400 South between Redwood Road and Bangerter Highway. Rather than building more lanes, UDOT will change the direction of some lanes to benefit commuters during peak travel times.
Change is good
Clearly marked lanes and overhead traffic lights will make the road simple to navigate. See UDOT’s Flex Lane video for a preview of what 5400 South will be like after the project:
Flex Lanes are part of a coordinated effort by UDOT to improve west-east travel in and around the Taylorsville, Utah area. See other innovative projects on the WE GO! website.
WE GO! Project representatives will be at Taylorsville Dayzz this weekend. Be sure and drop by to ask questions or get more information.
