TRAVEL ADVISORY: UDOT to Close Section of Eastbound I-80 in Tooele County Overnight

UDOT to Close Section of Eastbound I-80 in Tooele County Overnight

Drivers will be detoured onto S.R. 201 while crews complete pavement repairs Friday night    

 

SALT LAKE CITY (Jan. 24, 2019) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers to plan ahead for an overnight closure on eastbound I-80 in Tooele County. Eastbound I-80 will close at the S.R. 201 interchange (Exit 102) from Friday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m. to Saturday, Jan. 26, at noon while crews complete pavement repairs on the bridge over the Union Pacific railroad tracks.

During this closure, all eastbound drivers will be detoured onto S.R. 201, then to S.R. 202 and back to eastbound I-80. UDOT recommends planning ahead for heavier than normal traffic and delays due to this closure and allow extra time to travel the detour route.

This overnight closure is necessary to allow crews to repair the pavement with new concrete and provide it ample time to cure, ensuring the repair holds up to the heavy traffic, especially trucks, that travel this section of I-80.

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.

UDOT and Habitat for Humanity Partner to Reuse Materials from Homes Scheduled for Demolition 

UDOT and Habitat for Humanity Partner to Reuse Materials from Homes Scheduled for Demolition 


Partnership provides low-cost home improvement materials for the community and helps fund Habitat for Humanity projects

WHAT:

Habitat for Humanity volunteers will begin working this week to remove building materials such as doors, windows, cabinets and light fixtures from several UDOT-owned homes in Midvale. These homes are scheduled for demolition to accommodate a future widening project on I-15 northbound between 9000 South and the I-215 interchange. The reclaimed building materials are then sold through Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in Salt Lake City, and the proceeds from these sales help fund Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to build homes for those in need.

Over the past five years, UDOT and Habitat for Humanity have partnered to reclaim materials from nearly 130 houses. These houses were all acquired by UDOT as part of major construction projects to build new highways such as Mountain View Corridor or widen existing ones such as I-15 and Bangerter Highway.

Members of the media are invited to observe crews removing building materials from these homes and load them for transport to the ReStore. UDOT and Habitat for Humanity officials will be on site to offer interviews.

WHEN:
Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 9:30 a.m.

WHERE:
7860 S. Oak St. in Midvale

WHO:
Ed Blake, executive director, Salt Lake Valley Habitat for Humanity
John Gleason, UDOT public information officer

VISUALS:
