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:
- I-215 will be reduced to two lanes in each direction this weekend. Crews will use this time to continue placing polymer overlays and pouring overhead sign foundations. Drivers can expect minor delays driving through the work zone.
- I-215 may have intermittent overnight ramp closures as crews work to place signage and lighting.
- Crews are paving in the median for the next week and will then place new barrier for two weeks.
- Lanes are shifted and narrower throughout the work zone, so drivers should use caution and adhere to the 60 m.p.h. speed limit.
S.R. 201 Interchange
- S.R. 201 from Redwood Road to Bangerter Highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction with intermittent ramp closures on weeknights between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. and on weekends as crews repave.
- Drivers can expect moderate delays as crews are working. Visit udottraffic.utah.gov for scheduled ramp closure details.
As a reminder, I-215 may have intermittent lane closures during daytime and nighttime hours, seven days a week. Lanes are shifted and narrower throughout the work zone, so drivers should use caution and adhere to the 60 mph speed limit.
