As part of a proactive effort to address the immediate and long-term traffic needs on Bangerter Highway, UDOT will construct improvements at the intersection of Bangerter Highway and Redwood Road. The project will include a grade-separated single point urban interchange (SPUI).
The community surrounding Bangerter and Redwood Road continues to grow at an accelerated pace and these improvements are part of a long-range plan that will accommodate immediate and long-term traffic demands as well as increase mobility. In addition, the grade-separated SPUI will improve safety for those commuting through the area by reducing conflict points. Construction began in June 2014 and is expected to be complete in spring 2015. UDOT is committed to completing the project with as little inconvenience tot he public as possible.
NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN THROUGH SPRING 2015
Crews have closed some turning lanes at the Bangerter Highway and Redwood Road intersection and shifted some turn movements to a new temporary road. This temporary traffic switch will keep cars moving with fewer delays until project completion in spring 2015.
Additional changes will be implemented to accompany the new traffic pattern in November 2014. Here is what drivers can expect:
- Turn movements closed from eastbound Bangerter Highway to northbound Redwood Road.
- Motorists will be required to access the new temporary road in the southeast quadrant to travel between eastbound Bangerter Highway and northbound Redwood Road
- Turn movement for westbound Bangerter Highway to northbound Redwood Road will remain open
