TRAVEL ADVISORY: UDOT to Close Lane on Westbound I-80 for Several Months

UDOT to Close Lane on Westbound I-80 for Several Months

Bridge maintenance project starts Friday night, continues through June on I-80 near I-215 west belt

 

SALT LAKE CITY (Feb. 7, 2019) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers to plan ahead for a long-term lane closure on westbound I-80 near the I-215 west belt beginning Friday, Feb. 8, at 7:30 p.m. Westbound I-80 will be reduced to two lanes for approximately four months to allow crews to replace the decks (driving surfaces) on the I-80 bridges over the Jordan River Surplus Canal.

During this work, lanes will also be shifted on both westbound and eastbound I-80, and drivers traveling from the airport to eastbound I-80 will need to merge into through traffic sooner than they currently do. Heavier than normal traffic and delays of 10 minutes or more are expected during commute hours. Access to the airport will remain open throughout the project. To reduce delays, UDOT recommends using S.R. 201 as an alternate route.

The decks on these I-80 bridges are being removed and replaced as part of UDOT’s ongoing efforts to keep Utah’s roads and bridges in good condition. The new bridge surface is designed to accommodate the 71,000 vehicles per day that travel this section of the freeway. Work on the project is scheduled for completion this June.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change. For the latest information on traffic restrictions during construction, visit the UDOT Traffic website (udottraffic.utah.gov) or download the UDOT Traffic app for iPhone or Android. Drivers can also follow UDOT on social media including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
