I-15 Technology Corridor Leads UDOT’s Top 10 Projects in 2018

Major highway projects will build bridges, add lanes, and keep pavement
in good condition throughout the state

SALT LAKE CITY (April 2, 2018) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) announced its list of Top 10 construction projects for 2018 today.

UDOT crews will work on 188 highway construction projects scheduled across the state this
year, with a combined value of $1.46 billion. Planned improvements range from small sidewalk and street light installations, to the rebuilding of a 12-lane section of urban freeway. Within the Top 10, projects include widening and rebuilding freeways, constructing new interchanges or redesigning existing ones, and repaving and upgrading other local/regional highways.
Here are UDOT’s Top 10 Projects for 2018:

1. I-15 Technology Corridor — Utah County, S.R. 92 to Lehi Main Street, $450 million:
This $450 million project starts construction in the spring to widen I-15 to six lanes in both directions between S.R. 92 (Timpanogos Highway) and Main Street in Lehi. This is the last remaining section of I-15 between Salt Lake City and Spanish Fork where the freeway is still only four lanes wide. Other project improvements include a new overpass to extend Triumph Boulevard over I-15, and upgrades to the S.R. 92 and 2100 North interchanges. This project will finish in late 2020.

2. I-15 Southbound — Salt Lake County, 2100 South to 12300 South, $180 million:
Another major project will widen I-15 in Salt Lake County by adding a new southbound lane from 2100 South to 12300 South. This project will also redesign some of the southbound ramps at the I-15/I-215 south interchange to improve traffic flow, and will
widen 7200 South to three lanes from I-15 to Bingham Junction Boulevard in Midvale. Work will begin this spring and is expected to be complete in late 2019.

3. I-215/Redwood Road Diverging Diamond Interchange — North Salt Lake, $40 million:
In Davis County, crews will reconstruct I-215 from the I-15 interchange in North Salt Lake to 2100 North. This project will also construct a new Diverging Diamond interchange at Redwood Road and I-215. Construction started in February, and continues through the end of the year.

4. I-80/S.R. 36 Bridge Replacements —Tooele County, $30 million:
UDOT will replace three bridges on I-80 near the S.R. 36 interchange: eastbound and westbound I-80 over the Union Pacific railroad tracks, and the S.R. 36 ramp bridge. Construction on these bridges will start in late spring, and is expected to be complete in summer 2019.

5. Bluff Street — St. George, $51 million:
UDOT is widening Bluff Street in St. George from 100 South to Sunset Boulevard. Crews will add a lane in each direction, and add turn lanes at several intersections. This project started in January and will continue for about 12 months.

6. I-80 — Parleys Canyon, $30 million:
I-80 will be widened to add a new westbound lane for trucks from Jeremy Ranch to Parleys Summit, and a new wildlife crossing will also be constructed at the summit. In addition, crews will repave the interstate from Lambs Canyon to Kimball Junction. Construction starts today, and is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

7. Mountain View Corridor — Utah County, $41 million:
Mountain View Corridor in Utah County will be extended from the Redwood Road/2100 North intersection to S.R. 73. Work will begin this spring, and will finish up in 2019.

8. Bangerter Highway — Four Interchanges, $201 million:
Work continues to convert four intersections on Bangerter Highway into freeway-style interchanges. New interchanges are under construction at 5400 South, 7000 South, 9000 South, and 11400 South, and are scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.

9. S.R. 9 — Springdale, $19 million:
Crews are reconstructing S.R. 9, the gateway to Zion National Park, through the town of Springdale. Workers are removing the old pavement and replacing it with new asphalt, and adding new pedestrian and bike improvements. This project is scheduled to finish before the peak visitor season later this month.

10. S.R. 108 — Syracuse, $52 million:
UDOT is entering the second year of construction to widen and reconstruct S.R. 108 from Antelope Drive to 300 North in Davis County. Work on this project will be completed this fall.

PRESS RELEASE: UDOT to Begin I-80 Construction from Jeremy Ranch to Parleys Summit

For Immediate Release

UDOT to Begin I-80 Construction from Jeremy Ranch to Parleys Summit

Lane restrictions scheduled to begin Monday; construction continues through fall

 

SALT LAKE CITY (March 29, 2018) — The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is scheduled to begin construction on I-80 west of Park City on Monday, April 2. Crews are building a new westbound truck lane between the Jeremy Ranch and Parleys Summit interchange, installing additional wildlife fencing and building a wildlife crossing over I-80 just west of Parleys Summit.

“UDOT’s goal is to ensure safety for drivers on Utah’s roads,” said John Montoya, UDOT project manager. “This project will help truck traffic travel up hill, out of the way of other drivers, and will reduce vehicle and wildlife collisions in the area.”

Beginning as early as Monday, April 2, drivers are advised to plan ahead for nighttime work and lane restrictions Monday through Thursday, with narrowed, shifted lanes on westbound I-80. After two weeks, crews will work during daytime hours for the majority of the project, with overnight impacts as needed.

Width restrictions will also be placed on trucks traveling westbound through the project limits. These restrictions are scheduled to remain in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through fall 2018.

This work is part of Renovate I-80, a UDOT initiative designed to maintain and improve one of the most heavily used highways in Utah.

Construction schedules are weather dependent and subject to change. For more information about this and other UDOT projects, visit udottraffic.utah.gov or download the UDOT Traffic app, available for iOS or Android devices. To contact the project team with questions or concerns, call (888) 528-9675 or email renovatei80@utah.gov.

PRESS RELEASE: Daylight savings brings a warning from UDOT

For Immediate Release:

Daylight savings brings a warning from UDOT

Springing forward can cause drowsiness and poor visibility during morning commute

 

SALT LAKE CITY (March 9, 2018) –The Utah Department of Transportation’s Zero Fatalities program is reminding drivers to be extra alert after daylight savings on Sunday. Springing forward an hour can cause poor visibility during the morning commute, and a change in sleep cycle can result in drowsy driving.

Both of these factors require drivers to be alert and put away the distractions.

Driving during dark, dawn or dusk increases the risk of a fatal crash, especially auto-pedestrian crashes. UDOT recommends the following safe driving tips:

  • Recognize that pedestrians will be more difficult to see and be on the lookout. Slow down if needed, especially in neighborhoods, near schools and around intersections.
  • Eliminate distractions so you can focus on the task of driving. You may be a great driver, but remember, daylight savings will affect everyone on the road. Drive defensively.

Utahns need to recognize that their body will take time to adjust when losing an hour on Sunday. According to a study in the journal “Sleep Medicine Reviews,” a seemingly small one-hour shift in the sleep cycle can affect sleep for up to a week or longer. Here are some additional tips to stay safe:

  • Reduce your risk for daylight savings-induced drowsiness by resetting your internal body clock slowly. For the next two nights set your alarm clock for another 15 minutes earlier and go to bed 15-30 minutes earlier than usual.
  • Enjoy the weekend, be active to tire yourself out so it will be easier to fall asleep earlier.
  • Make sure you are awake before getting in your vehicle to drive. If you experience the symptoms of sleepiness while driving, pull over to a safe place and take a power nap.

NEWS RELEASE: Bangerter Highway/9000 South Intersection to Close Overnight for Bridge Beam Installation

For Immediate Release

 

Bangerter Highway/9000 South Intersection to Close Overnight for Bridge Beam Installation

Crews to place beams for new Bangerter Highway interchange at 9000 South in West Jordan Wednesday night

 

SALT LAKE CITY (Feb. 27, 2018) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers in western Salt Lake County to plan ahead for an overnight closure on Bangerter Highway at 9000 South tomorrow night. Northbound Bangerter Highway will close, along with both directions of 9000 South, starting Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m. and lasting until Thursday, March 1, at 6 a.m. while crews place beams for a new overpass.

During this closure, southbound Bangerter Highway will remain open, but all northbound traffic will be detoured onto 9000 South, then back onto Bangerter Highway via Redwood Road and 7800 South. East-west traffic on 9000 South will be detoured to Old Bingham Highway and 4000 West. Drivers should plan for delays, allow extra time for detours, and use alternate routes to avoid the area if possible. UDOT also reminds travelers to use caution in work zones and to obey all signs and signals.

The new Bangerter Highway overpass at 9000 South is being built as part of UDOT’s Bangerter Highway interchanges project, which is converting four intersections into freeway-style interchanges. These new interchanges – located at 5400 South, 7000 South, 9000 South, and 11400 South, are all scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

Drivers with questions or concerns about the Bangerter Highway interchanges project can call the project hotline at 888-766-7623 or email the project team at bangerter@utah.gov.

Construction schedules are weather-dependent and subject to change.

NEWS RELEASE: Zero Fatalities installs sidewalk clings to help encourage pedestrian safety

For Immediate Release

Zero Fatalities installs sidewalk clings to help encourage pedestrian safety

Historically, December is the second deadliest month for pedestrian deaths in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (December 13, 2017) – Zero Fatalities has installed outdoor advertisements as part of the “Heads Up” pedestrian safety campaign, reminding people to stay alert when walking this holiday season. Twenty sidewalk clings were placed from Ogden to Provo along with retro-reflective advertisements at 50 bus shelters throughout Salt Lake City. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) selected intersections with high pedestrian traffic and crashes.

“Unfortunately, we see far too many pedestrian deaths, especially this time of year” said UDOT Traffic and Safety Director Robert Miles. “We hope these messages will remind Utahns to be more aware and more careful when walking close to traffic.”

There are two different sidewalk clings. One reads, “The driver didn’t see the pedestrian. The pedestrian didn’t see the driver. Watch for cars, they might not see you.” The second cling reads, “Your life is in danger. Watch for cars, they might not see you.”

“Pedestrian deaths are 100-percent preventable,” Miles said. “But to prevent pedestrian fatalities, drivers and pedestrians must work together.”

Pedestrian fatalities are increasing at an alarming rate in Utah and across the Nation. This year, 40 pedestrians have been killed on Utah roads, already surpassing the total number of pedestrian deaths in 2016. In Utah, historical crash data shows pedestrian fatalities increase during the fall and winter months. December is the second deadliest month, second to October, for pedestrian fatalities.

Zero Fatalities offers these simple tips to preventing an auto-pedestrian crash:

Drivers, remember to

●     Always be on the lookout for pedestrians.

●     Always yield right of way to pedestrians.

●     Never speed, drive distracted, drowsy or impaired.

Pedestrians, remember to:

●     Never assume the right of way and stay alert

●     Cross at designated crosswalks and adhere to traffic signs and signals

●     Be visible, by wearing reflective materials when possible

●     When doing everything right, still assume drivers can’t see you.
