UDOT Names Additional Deputy Director

Newly-created role will help lead the Department into the transportation future

SALT LAKE CITY (April 5, 2018) – UDOT Executive Director Carlos Braceras announced today he has named Teri Newell as an additional deputy director for the department.

The additional deputy director will help guide the department as it moves to address issues relating to Utah’s growing population, advances in technology and the evolution of the transportation industry. The newly-created position comes after the passing of SB 136, which addressed the governance of transportation in Utah.

Newell joins Braceras and Deputy Director Shane Marshall in leading the department’s more than 1,600 employees. The executive team also oversees the design, construction and maintenance of Utah’s 6,000 miles of state roads and highways.

“Teri has proven herself as an innovative leader,” Braceras said. “Her work as Region Three Director and as the project manager for the Mountain View Corridor has helped to prepare her to take an active role shaping this new position and in helping to lead UDOT into its exciting transportation future.”

Newell begins her new role immediately. For the past five years, she has served as UDOT’s Region Three director, and was responsible for the construction and maintenance of state roads in Utah, Juab, Wasatch, Duchesne, Uintah and Daggett Counties. Prior to her role as UDOT’s first female region director, Newell spent 10 years taking the Mountain View Corridor from a concept, through the environmental process, to completion of the initial phases. Before joining UDOT, Newell was the operations director for Salt Lake County, and held other positions in the private sector. She is a native of Iowa, and she received her civil engineering degree from Iowa State University.

Newell will continue to lead Region Three activies until a new region director is announced.

NEWS RELEASE: Roadwork Set to Begin on I-215 at 2100 North, Redwood Road Interchange

For Immediate Release  

Roadwork Set to Begin on I-215 at 2100 North, Redwood Road Interchange

Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) planned Redwood Road interchange in North Salt Lake

 

 

OGDEN – A major project is getting underway that will alter lanes on northbound Interstate 215, and dramatically reconfigure the Redwood Road Interchange with I-215 in North Salt Lake, beginning February 22.

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will begin construction on I-215 at 2100 North, followed by work on a new interchange configuration at I-215 and Redwood Road (state Road 68) in North Salt Lake as early as February 22.  These improvements include the construction of a new Diverging Diamond interchange, and pavement rehabilitation on I-215 and on Redwood Road (SR-68).

According to UDOT Project Manager Brett Slater, the Redwood Road interchange in North Salt Lake is heavily traveled by large trucks, commuters and area residents.  He said this project will alleviate this congestion and improve operations for years to come.

However, while construction is underway motorists can expect severe congestion, particularly at the Redwood Road Interchange, he said.

During construction travel lanes will narrow, lanes will shift, and congestion will increase.  Drivers are advised that significant backing is expected on northbound I-215 from 2100 North through the Redwood Road interchange. Redwood Road will also be under construction from I-215 to Center Street in North Salt Lake.

While semi-truck traffic is prohibited on the Legacy Parkway (SR-67), other traffic is encouraged to use it as an alternate route. Other alternates include I-15 to 500 South in Bountiful, I-80 to I-15, or continue on I-215 to I-15. Motorists are also reminded to slow down in the construction zone. It’s required by law and helps save lives, especially for the construction workers on the project.

The public can contact the project team with any questions or concerns about this construction by calling the hotline at 800-292-3557, or by emailing “ddinsl@utah.gov.”
