The Point Project— Improving I-15 from Lehi to Draper
The Point project will improve mobility and reduce congestion along I-15 between northern Utah County and Draper, specifically from S.R. 92 to 12300 South. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) plans to widen and place new pavement along this seven-mile stretch of freeway.
Named for its location around the point of the mountain, The Point will use $252 million of state funds to build the following improvements:
- Expand I-15 to six lanes in each direction from S.R. 92 to 12300 South
- Replace the aged concrete pavement with new, durable pavement
- Replace the bridges and realign the East Frontage Road intersection at the 14600 South interchange in Bluffdale to accommodate future interchange modifications
- Enhance the existing traffic management system by installing additional ramp meters, fiber optics and other infrastructure to improve mobility
UDOT has selected Utah County Constructors to design and construct the I-15 Point Project. Preliminary construction activities are expected to begin this fall with major construction starting Spring 2015.
