Current Construction Status
S.R. 201 to 12300 South & 7200 South Widening
The Utah Department of Transportation is conducting an environmental study to evaluate possible transportation-related improvements to reduce delays along I-15 and 7200 South.
The proposed project will include the following improvements:
Adding a lane to southbound I-15 between S.R. 201 and 12300 South in Salt Lake County.
Widen 7200 South to three lanes in each direction from I-15 to Bingham Junction Boulevard in Midvale.
Potential modifications to the I-15 interchange at I-215 to improve traffic flow.
Please refer to the Project Map in the left-hand column for reference.
The I-15 Southbound project will use $175 million dollars in state funds, which accounts for the environmental study, design and construction.
I-15 Southbound Environmental Open House
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has conducted a State Environmental Study to evaluate possible transportation-related improvements along a stretch of southbound I-15 and 7200 South in Salt Lake County. UDOT has evaluated the feasibility of adding a lane to southbound I-15 between S.R. 201 and 12300 South in Salt Lake County, as well as widening 7200 South one lane in each direction from I-15 to Bingham Junction in Midvale. Modifications to the I-15 interchange at I-215 to improve traffic flow in this area were also studied.
After addressing and incorporating analysis from many technical areas as well as public feedback during the process, UDOT then sought public feedback on the final draft environmental document and provided information about the proposed project.
The I-15 Southbound project team is currently conducting an environmental study to assess any potential impacts and refine the project with the public’s input. Pending environmental approval, the procurement process will begin, with a contractor team selected by early 2018 when construction is set to begin. UDOT anticipates construction will take two years to complete.
