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 will also be removed as part of this project, and will be 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. Please be aware of the following project activities and upcoming traffic impacts:

Mainline I-215

  • Crews will be completing work in the median on westbound I-215 at the I-15 interchange on Monday, December 19. Drivers can expect non-peak, daytime lane closures in the left lane while this work takes place.
  • All southbound traffic between S.R. 201 and 4700 South is shifted onto the new concrete median and work has begun on the travel lanes in this area.
    • There is a lane split within the traffic shift from S.R. 201 to 4100 South with two lanes of traffic on each side. Traffic exiting at 3500 South must be in the two outside lanes to exit.
  • Crews are paving on mainline I-215 in the southbound lanes in various sections as weather permits.

4700 South Interchange

  • Crews are completing work on the southbound I-215 off-ramp to 4700 South and the eastbound 4700 South on-ramp to southbound I-215 through December.
  • Work on 4700 South is wrapping up as crews need to complete painting when weather permits.
  • Drivers should use caution through this interchange as final traffic configurations are put into place.

3500 South Interchange

  • Crews continue work on the I-215 bridge above 3500 South and will be placing the new bridge deck on Thursday, December 22. Drivers should use caution on 3500 South as crews are working.

S.R. 201 Interchange

  • To improve the flow of traffic and to maintain safety during the traffic split, the westbound S.R. 201 loop ramp to southbound I-215 is closed through early 2017. Crews will use this time to replace the concrete on the ramp. Drivers on westbound S.R. 201 should take an alternate exit to travel south. Drivers can also use westbound I-80 to access southbound I-215 as an alternate.
  • Crews are reconstructing the eastbound S.R. 201 ramp to southbound I-215. This ramp will be reconstructed one half at a time and will remain open to drivers.
  • 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 in early 2017.
    • Drivers can expect short-term daytime lane closures on S.R. 201 over the next week while crews work on the bridge.

As a reminder, all travel lanes are open in each direction during daytime hours Monday through Friday. I-215 is reduced to two lanes in each direction during nights and weekends. All lanes are shifted and narrower throughout the work zone, so drivers should use caution and adhere to the 60 mph speed limit.
