Overview

Major concrete reconstruction on I-215 in western Salt Lake County began May 3, 2016. Crews will remove the existing pavement from 4700 South to S.R. 201 and install new, long-lasting concrete, providing a smoother ride for drivers. Crews will also:

  • Replace the bridges at S.R. 201
  • Widen the bridges at 3800 South and 3500 South
  • Improve ramps at 4700 South and 3500 South
  • Add new lanes between interchanges
  • Upgrade signs and lighting
  • Install ramp meters at 3500 South and 4700 South

The existing asphalt on westbound I-215 from 300 East to Redwood Road was also removed as part of this project, and was replaced with new asphalt pavement.

All work is scheduled for completion by fall 2017.

Ongoing Construction Activities

I-215 reconstruction continues from 4700 South to S.R. 201 as weather permits and dates are subject to change. Please be aware of the following project activities and scheduled traffic impacts:

Mainline I-215

  • Crews are paving as weather permits over the coming weeks, and expect to complete southbound work in April 2017.
    • Southbound travel lanes will stay in a split configuration until paving is complete. There is a lane split within the traffic shift from S.R. 201 to 4100 South with two lanes of traffic on each side of a temporary barrier. Traffic exiting at 3500 South must be in the two outside lanes to exit.
    • The westbound S.R. 201 loop ramp to southbound I-215 will be closed through April to ensure safety for drivers in the split. Westbound S.R. 201 drivers should continue using Bangerter Highway or Redwood Road as alternates. Drivers can also use westbound I-80 to access southbound I-215.
  • Crews are working to patch up potholes on northbound I-215 from 4700 South to S.R. 201. This work will require short-term lane closures during the day and overnight as needed.

S.R. 201 Interchange

  • Crews are reconstructing the eastbound S.R. 201 ramp to southbound I-215. Traffic will be shifted onto the new concrete as early as tonight, February 16, and will then begin work on the other half of this ramp. This ramp will be reconstructed one half at a time and will remain open to drivers. Nearby businesses and residents may experience additional daytime noise and vibration during the construction.
  • Crews continue to build the new southbound I-215 bridge at S.R. 201 adjacent to the temporary bridge currently holding traffic. This new bridge is scheduled to be complete this spring.
    • Drivers can expect daytime and overnight lane closures on S.R. 201 over the next two weeks while crews work on the bridge.

3500 South Interchange

  • Traffic will be shifted to one half of the eastbound 3500 South on-ramp to southbound I-215 as early as tonight, February 16. This will allow crews to continue removing and replacing concrete on mainline I-215 near the ramp. Nearby businesses and residents may experience additional daytime noise and vibration during the construction.
    • Crews continue to work on the I-215 bridge above 3500 South. Drivers should use caution on 3500 South as crews are working overhead.

As a reminder, all travel lanes are open in each direction during the morning and afternoon commutes Monday through Friday. I-215 may have intermittent lane closures during off-peak times, including nights and weekends as needed through the winter. Lanes are shifted and narrower throughout the work zone, so drivers should use caution and adhere to the 60 mph speed limit.
