For Immediate Release
I-215 Ramp to S.R. 201 to Close for 30 Days Beginning Friday
Other road construction restrictions scheduled in Salt Lake and Davis counties
SALT LAKE CITY (July 28, 2016) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is scheduled to close the freeway ramp from northbound I-215 to westbound S.R. 201 Friday morning, July 29, beginning at 1 a.m. The ramp will remain closed for up to 30 days for reconstruction, so drivers should plan ahead and use I-15 or Bangerter Highway as alternate routes to access westbound S.R. 201.
This work is being completed as part of the I-215 reconstruction project, which will repave the freeway between S.R. 201 and 4700 South with new concrete, rebuild the bridges at the I-215/S.R. 201 interchange, and add new exit-only lanes in both directions.
Also as part of the I-215 project, the on-ramp from eastbound 4700 South to northbound I-215 is now closed until late August. Crews are reconstructing this ramp as well with new pavement. Drivers in the area should use Redwood Road or 3500 South to access northbound I-215.
Other projects that drivers should plan for this week include:
The Point Project – Southbound I-15 is scheduled to be reduced to one lane near 14600 South in Bluffdale for three nights –Friday, July 29; Saturday, July 30; and Sunday, July 31. Lane closures will start as early as 8 p.m. each night, with southbound I-15 reduced to one lane by midnight. All lanes will reopen by 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday in time for the morning commute on Monday. Crews will be continuing bridge work as part of the I-15 widening project near the Point of the Mountain.
Drivers should also expect intermittent lane restrictions in both directions between Bangerter and S.R. 92 for pavement work on weekends through mid-August.
I-15 in Davis County – Daytime lane closures are scheduled Monday through Friday for the next three months on I-15 in Davis County between the U.S. 89/Park Lane interchange in Farmington and the Layton Parkway exit. Crews will be adding a northbound auxiliary lane from Shepard Lane to Layton Parkway, and a southbound auxiliary lane from Layton Parkway to 200 North in Kaysville. In addition, new ramp meters will be installed at 200 North in Kaysville. Drivers should plan extra time and expect delays. If possible, consider alternate routes or use UTA FrontRunner.
Bangerter Highway at I-15 – The on-ramp from eastbound Bangerter Highway to southbound I-15 is scheduled to close from Friday, July 29, at 11 p.m., to Monday, Aug. 1, at 6 a.m. Crews will be repairing the concrete pavement on the ramp. Drivers should get on northbound I-15 and then use the 12300 South interchange to turn around and access southbound I-15.
