UDOT and South Salt Lake City Council to Make Safety Improvements to 3300 South Near Homeless Resource Center

Additional lights, signals, and outreach planned to enhance pedestrian safety in the area 

SALT LAKE CITY (Jan. 6, 2020) – The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and South Salt Lake City is installing several improvements to enhance safety for pedestrians along 3300 South near the new South Salt Lake homeless resource center. 

New electronic message signs were installed last weekend that advise drivers to use caution and be alert for pedestrians. Then over the next several months UDOT will be adding signs, signals and lighting in the area of 3300 South and 1000 West and conducting safety-related outreach among vulnerable populations in the area.

Additional improvements will include:

  • A new pedestrian-activated signal to stop traffic for foot traffic to cross
  • Additional lighting at nearby intersections and along the road 
  • Relocation of the nearby UTA transit stop 
  • New portable signs to alert drivers of their current speed
  • Safety-focused outreach to clients at the homeless resource center
  • Ongoing coordination with South Salt Lake law enforcement and public works

UDOT will continue to collaborate with South Salt Lake City leaders on improving the area. 

UDOT is committed to keeping Utah roads as safe as possible. Whenever a serious crash occurs, UDOT engineers review the incident to understand what factors were involved and what potential measures can be implemented to prevent similar crashes in the future.

Delays Expected on Bangerter Highway, I-15 This Weekend

Bangerter Highway lane closures scheduled in Taylorsville Friday through Monday; I-15 lane closures scheduled in Lehi Saturday and Sunday


SALT LAKE CITY (Nov. 21, 2019) 
– The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers to plan for delays due to new lane restrictions on Bangerter Highway and I-15 this weekend. 

In Taylorsville, Bangerter Highway will be reduced to one northbound lane and two southbound lanes near 6200 South from Friday, Nov. 22, at 9 p.m. to Monday, Nov. 25, at 5 a.m. While these lane restrictions are in place, crews will complete work to relocate a water line underneath the intersection, prior to construction of a new freeway-style interchange on Bangerter Highway at 6200 South. Work on the interchange itself is scheduled to begin in 2020. 

In Lehi, northbound I-15 will be reduced to four lanes on Saturday, Nov. 23, beginning at 8 a.m., with additional lane closures possible after 9:30 p.m. On Sunday, Nov. 24, the freeway will be reduced to three northbound lanes until noon. Although crews may not be on site during these lane closures, they are needed to allow concrete to cure for a new I-15 bridge over Lehi Main Street. 

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.
